Middlesbrough celebrates Armed Forces day with a bang this year, in the very heart of the Town Centre. Corporation Road and Linthorpe road will be alive with activity from 10:00 till 16:00. The Town centre is a fitting venue for this fun-filled family day, including a parade, band performance and a variety of demonstrations, activities and entertainment.
The event is open to all, from families and local groups to veterans and potential new recruits. The celebration – formerly known as Veterans’ Day – has been developed to reflect the wider role of the UK Armed Forces in the life of the nation and its local communities, and their involvement in ongoing conflicts around the globe. Highlights of the day will include a parade of service veterans, Air, Sea and Army Cadets, the military standards, veterans, local army and cadet units.
