Mother’s Day! An Afternoon to Remember at Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome

Treat the special lady in your life to an afternoon that she will remember for years to come. On Sunday 11th March the Airmen’s Mess at Stow Maries will be the venue for a sparkling high tea with live entertainment.

Set in rolling countryside, Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome was originally opened in 1916 and was home to B Flight of No 37(HD) Squadron, Royal Flying Corps. The site saw the birth of the Air Defence of Great Britain in response to the first raids by Zeppelins and Gotha bombers on London and the South East.

The site will open for an hour for you to explore our museum galleries before your table is ready at 2pm. Begin with a celebratory Kir Royale cocktail and then enjoy a delicious selection of finger sandwiches, home-made scones with Wilkin & Son world renowned jam as well as cakes from Tiptree Patisserie.

Then sit back and listen to the lovely harmonies of ‘Just Us’, a singing quartet who specialises in World War 1 & 2 songs, especially the Andrews Sisters.

The afternoon tea will start at 2pm, until 4.30pm, with live music from 3.30-4.15pm. Adult tickets are priced at £22.50 per adult, children under 16’s £12.
