Wings Over Illawarra - Cancelled

New date in November 2021

After consultation with NSW Health, the organisers of Wings Over Illawarra 2020, Mark and Kerry Bright, have made the heart-breaking decision to cancel the 2020 event which was due to take place in November 2020.

Originally set for May 2020, Wings Over Illawarra was postponed to November in the hope the current COVID-19 situation would have eased sufficiently for the event to take place.  Unfortunately, this is not the case.

“We are now forging ahead with Wings Over Illawarra 2021 and have set the dates for the 13th and 14th November 2021 with a STEM day planned for the 12th November 2021.  Having the event in May 2021 was considered, but we did not want to find ourselves in the same situation again with the pandemic not completely under control.”

All tickets that have already been purchased for the 2020 event will be re-issued in the coming weeks with the new dates for the 2021 event. 

Due to our current financial position refunds will not be available at this time.

We apologise for any inconvenience and ask our ticket holders for their patience during these unprecedented times.
