The RAF Red Arrows
The Royal Air Force Aerobatics Team, the Red Arrows, will return to the skies above the Isles of Scilly for a full 25-minute aerobatic display on Bank Holiday Monday, 28th August 2017.
After the success of last year’s display – a first for Scilly – Tresco Island has stepped up to sponsor the return of the aerobatic team in an event organised by The Islands' Partnership.
The islands can look forward to a spectacular flying display starring the most famous aerobatic team in the world!
The display will start at 3pm on Monday 28th August 2017.
The Great Tresco Red Arrows Picnic
To celebrate this spectacle, we'd like to invite you to The Great Tresco Red Arrows Picnic!
Join us at Bathinghouse Porth, near Carn Near Quay, from 1:30pm on Monday 28th August 2017 for a great British picnic, with one of the most spectacular views of the Red Arrows display on the islands.
From 1:30pm we'll have live music from singer/songwriter Louella Jade Eke, before we catch the spectacle of the Red Arrows display from 3pm. We also hope to broadcast the commentary of 'Red 10' - Squadron Leader Mike Ling MBE - live from St Mary's.
You can pre-order your picnic items from Tresco Stores using the order form in your cottage, Tresco Stores and the Island Office.
Order your choice from our tempting selection before 1pm on Sunday 27th August and we'll even deliver your picnic - along with cutlery, plates, glasses and a picnic blanket - to the beach on Monday afternoon.
As the light begins to soften and autumn winds wrap around us, so our final show of the year reflects another aspect of Scilly with muted tones, cobalt seas, empty beaches and the soft whisper of marram grass whipping in the breeze.Anna Parkes, manager
