      Example sentences
      • ‘Even festive songs are being played over the tannoy.’
      • ‘‘This is your captain speaking,’ said a disembodied voice over the tannoy.’
      • ‘The train driver explained the situation over the tannoy, adding that it might be some consolation to us to know that the safety equipment works.’
      • ‘But when we got off the plane at Heathrow on our way home we heard our names being called over the tannoy.’
      • ‘A message comes over the tannoy, ‘There are no southbound services on the tube line at the moment’.’


    The Brits also refer to all vacuum cleaners as 'Hoovers' whether they're made by Hoover or not. The origin of the name Tannoy is in fact an anagram formed from two words (tantalum & alloy). And yes, in the early days they were known for PA systems.

    very true , if you say to the man in the street they will all think a tannoy is a pa system . my old church in London a few yards from the old tannoy base had speakers from tannoy instead of church bells ,
