A spokesperson for the air festival said: “As I’m sure everyone can appreciate and understand, we are constantly monitoring and responding to government advice within a rapidly changing situation.

“The festival is still about five months away so we are still planning for the event and hopefully we can celebrate at the end of the summer.”
