Events in Torbay during May and June

There’s always something going on in Torbay, the bay is full of attractions to visit and things to do, but there’s also a wealth of annual events which attract visitors from afar.  Of course the Channel View Boutique Hotel is the perfect, adult-only, place to stay while you explore Torbay, or attend these events.


This weekend sees the return of the BMAD Festival to Paignton Green, it’s one of the biggest bike, beer and music
festivals in the UK!

Bikers Make A Difference, raises lots of money each year for sick, disadvantaged and disabled children.  This popular event attracts thousands of bikers and supporters from all over the country each May Day Bank Holiday.  There’s a smaller version each Wednesday evening throughout the Summer too. We’re only a short walk away from the main event, but far enough away to be nice and quiet.

It’s a spectacular sight, whether bikes are your ‘thing’ or not, and you’ll be supporting a really great cause. For more information check out

Whether you are mad about bikes or not, BMAD is a great event and a really good cause.

Brixham Pirate Festival

May Day Bank Holiday also sees the annual return of the amazing Pirate Festival, a full weekend of Pirates, Mermaids and Music (and a little tipple or two).  So, why not bring your costume and join the masses for a party on the Harbourside, there’s processions, dancing and plenty to fill your day and evening for the 3 day event.  It’s highly recommended by our guests. Updates and lots of great pictures of previous events can be found at

Torbay Airshow

Two days of breath-taking air displays, right outside of the Channel View, you won’t get a better view of the show anywhere else in Torbay!  Imagine if you made it even more special by booking one of our sea-view rooms?

This year we are really lucky to have the Red Arrows Display Team on both days,  as they are out of the country for most of the summer. We’re expecting a boom turnout.

There’s a full list of the incredible aircraft due to fly over the two days.  You’ll find up to date information at

It’s an annual event, first weekend in June each year, so book early it’s very popular.
