They will feast on Cornwall’s finest food and soak up some of the county’s culture during the G7 summit.

At a lavish dinner at the Eden Project on Friday night they will feast on fish caught off the Cornish coast and cooked by Emily Scott, chef at the Watergate Bay hotel near Newquay.

The Queen and Prince of Wales will join for a reception before the dinner.

Saturday night’s dinner will be a less formal affair, with the leaders tucking into a barbecue on the beach in Carbis Bay cooked by Simon Stallard, from the Hidden Hut in Portscatho.

The Red Arrows will do a fly past and the leaders and their wives will toast marshmallows on a fire pit while encouraged into a Sea Shanty singalong.

Local Shanty band Du Hag Owr will provide the musical accompaniment to the event, all washed down with Cornish sparkling wine, German Riesling, Australian Shiraz, Cornish beer and a “hedgerow fizz cocktail”.
