Hundreds of people will be waving their Union flags and singing along in celebration of our troops at Aldershot’s new free Armed Forces Day Prom in the Park on Saturday 25 June, from 2.00-5pm in Princes Gardens.
Bring your flags, rugs, picnics, friends and family to enjoy the mix of traditional and modern live music!
The afternoon’s festivities start at 2.30pm, when the bar, tea tent and street food stalls open, alongside children’s activities and community stalls on Princes Way.
At 3pm, the main Prom concert begins in the beautiful Princes Gardens, with two local concert bands leading a patriotic programme of popular live music. The concert will end in flag waving style with traditional Last Night of the Proms favourites, Rule Britannia, Jerusalem, and Land of Hope and Glory. There will also be a special interval performance and a thank you speech from Aldershot’s Garrison Commander.
Programmes and flags will be available to buy on the day from our charity partners.
This free event is organised by Rushmoor Borough Council, in partnership with Aldershot Garrison and is supported by local companies and organisations.
