Y o u a n d t h e R A F Flight Lieutenant Christine Murray Introduces the


RAF Presentation Team


P


ublic presentations offer a unique opportunity to learn more about the Royal Air Force.


For anyone who is part of the RAF family, it can prove of even greater value as an insight into what the serving member of the family is a part of. It can increase understanding of the RAF and what it can do for you, in particular in your local community.


The RAF Presentation Team travels the country to illustrate the roles, equipment and personnel of today’s RAF, demonstrating why the RAF is relevant to the British public and how it has built such an enviable reputation around the world.


The presentation takes the audience through who makes up the RAF, what they do and how they do it. It is a fast moving multi-media presentation and at the end the audience is given the chance to quiz the Presentation Team! The Team is kept on its toes by the huge range of questions asked. Fortunately, the Team usually receives really positive feedback from their guests on a professional and entertaining presentation and a thank you for the honest answers given to questions.


Events are held all over the country and if one is coming to a venue near you, you are most cordially invited to attend. Normally the evening begins at 7.00pm with a drinks reception before the presentation itself at 7.30pm. From the moment


they arrive guests can meet and chat to members of the Royal Air Force, from the Presentation Team, local RAF units, the Air Training Corps and RAF Reserves. Service charities may well be in attendance to expand awareness of their own roles and links to the RAF Family.


Where possible, RAF equipment or vehicles are on display, and the Salon Orchestra from the Central Band of the RAF provides background music. Tea and coffee is served at around 8.30pm after the presentation when there is again an opportunity to speak informally to RAF personnel before the event concludes.


A typical audience is around 150-200; local dignitaries are invited, including Lord Mayors, Lord Lieutenants, and local MPs as well as key figures from the civilian service sector. Members of the public are also very welcome to request an invitation for a specific event.


You can find details of your nearest event by keeping an eye out in the local press, your local HIVE or by checking the RAF Presentation team website at www.raf.mod.uk/ presentationteam


The Team also takes bookings, capacity permitting, to present as part of corporate insight days, society meetings, or conferences and seminars. There is no charge, all they ask is for audience greater than 60 people.
