Guildford will host celebrations for Armed Forces Day 2015

Guildford, with its strong historic and present day military links, has been chosen to host the prestigious Armed Forces Day national event on Saturday 27 June 2015.

Guildford Borough Council is planning an exciting line-up of events including a special service at Guildford Cathedral, a formal parade in Guildford High Street, and a spectacular military show at Stoke Park followed by ‘picnic and proms in the park’. An impressive air display will complete a memorable day.

Mayor of Guildford, Cllr David Elms will lead the Council’s team organising the event. He said:

Guildford will be the focus for the whole country and this wonderful celebration will allow local people and the wider community to thank all those working within our Armed Forces. We expect to welcome tens of thousands of residents and visitors. I hope that everyone enjoys their time with us on this special day.

More information will be available soon on the Council’s website.
