RAF Red Arrows | come to tea at the Duchy!

Before commentating on another of their team’s superb aeronautical displays above Falmouth Bay, the Red Arrows support crew took time out to enjoy afternoon tea with us.

Situated on the town’s seafront and commanding panoramic sea views, our location proved the ideal spot to enjoy food and drink on the terrace prior to taking to the microphone and talking the thousands of spectators who had gathered to watch through the complex manoeuvres taking place in the skies above them.

It’s the second successive year that we’ve hosted the pre-performance tea at the Royal Duchy.

“The Red Arrows are a highlight of Falmouth Week and it’s always wonderful to see them here,” said Brend Hotels Area Director John Allen. “Some of our younger guests were particularly thrilled to be given the chance of meeting members of the team and getting their autographs.”

Falmouth is the only place in Cornwall to feature on the Red Arrows display programme this year. Crowds of people lined the shoreline to watch and, thanks to good sea conditions, hundreds more took to boats to enjoy the spectacle from the water.
