Festival of Speed | Press Article 17/04/24

  • Red Arrows to take to the skies at the Festival of Speed on Thursday 13 and Friday 14 July.
  • Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard takes place Thursday 13 - Sunday 16 July.

We are delighted to confirm that all eyes will be on the sky at the Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard, as the Red Arrows will be stunning spectators with a spectacular display on Thursday 13 and Friday 14 July.

Renowned for their magnificent air displays, the Royal Airforce Aerobatic Team has become a mainstay of the Festival of Speed, creating the most iconic images as they soar above the rooftops of Goodwood House.

Squadron Leader Tom Bould, Team Leader and Red 1 of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, said: “It’s always spectacular to display at the Festival of Speed. In 2023, our updated display will, once again, aim to inspire those watching with a combination of precision manoeuvres and dynamic loops and rolls.  Visiting on the ground after our display and meeting visitors is always a real highlight and humbling for the team and is a brilliant opportunity to explain more about the work of the Red Arrows and Royal Air Force.” 

Whether your eyes are trained on the hillclimb or the sky, there is always an abundance of action at the Festival of Speed.

The Red Arrows’ displays will be included in the Festival of Speed timetable; available nearer the event.
