Armed Forces Day

Aldershot — 29 June 2019

Armed Forces Day

11:00 am to 3:00 pm

Celebrate our troops and wave your flags! Aldershot’s troops will put on a spectacular parade through the town centre on Saturday 29 June.

Festivities open in Princes Gardens at 11am in anticipation of the parade at 12 noon, with a day of exciting free family entertainment. Families can enjoy a variety of live music on the bandstand, food and drink stalls, free face painting and bouncy castles.

The Parade will pass the Princes Hall at 12 noon, continue around the town centre, then return to the Princes Hall for a traditional Drum Ceremony with support from Hart Male Voice Choir.

Aldershot is the home of the British army, and Armed Forces Day gives the public the opportunity to raise public awareness of the contribution made by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, as well as show their support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community.
