Armed Forces Weekend

We are sorry to announce that this event has been cancelled.

Armed Forces Day is an important event in our annual calendar of activity. Paying tribute to the work of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, it is a celebration of their vital contribution and commitment to our nation. Our onsite event, bringing together serving personnel and the wider community, is one of the largest in the country. Sadly, due to the Covid 19 pandemic and the guidance on social distancing, we have taken the decision to cancel the event for 2020. This is inline with the decision on the national event, which was due to be held in Scarborough.
