Armed Forces Day 2019

This family-fun event will once again be action-packed with air displays, fly-pasts, parades and live music on 29th June 2019

 

Armed Forces Day is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to come along and show their support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community from currently serving troops to reservists, veterans, cadets and their families.

The start of the day will see the Parade of Standards, as veterans and cadets march across the Hoe promenade. Throughout the day, visitors will be able to watch the Field Gun competition with tri-service teams competing for the prestigious Babcock Cup. From 5pm, an air display will take to the skies, followed by a flypast an RAF Spitfire plane. The closing display will be from the spectacular Red Arrows.

The main stage will host performances from local choirs and groups throughout the day, including the Community Military Kids Choir and the Military Wives Choir. From 6pm, a free evening concert will entertain the crowds with a fantastic range of live music. The night will be headlined by One Step Behind, the UK’s leading Madness tribute band. Also taking to the stage is Scarlett Lee, last year’s X Factor runner-up, a Tom Jones tribute act and the Royal Marine Function Band.
