Armed Forces Day on Saturday 24 June 2017 to be hosted by Liverpool


17 May 2017

Armed Forces Day is an opportunity to say thank you to the Armed Forces community, including Regulars, Reserves, their families and veterans past and present. From fighting Daesh in the Middle East to training troops in Nigeria and supporting NATO exercises, the UK’s Armed Forces are on duty 24/7.

This year’s event on will begin with a spectacular display from the Red Arrows, an amphibious demonstration on the beach from the Royal Marines and a parachute drop from the RAF Falcons. And across the country, more than 300 events including parades, military displays and community fetes took place.

Liverpool City Council will now develop its own plans and the event will be linked with the International Mersey River Festival – a celebration of the waterfront with family fun, music and entertainment – with linked activities taking place across the weekend of 24 and 25 June.

There are hundreds of events taking place to celebrate Armed Forces Day across the country. To find an event near you go to:
