Wolverhampton — 27 June 2015
Armed Forces Day Parade
- Wulfruna St,
The annual Armed Forces Day commemorations gives people from across Wolverhampton an opportunity to show their support and pay tribute to serving troops, veterans, cadets and their families.
There will be a parade through the city centre of regular, reserve, veteran and cadet forces led by the Pipe Band of the West Midlands Fire Service.
The parade will march from Wulfruna Street at 12.40pm and make its way to St Peter’s Square where an outdoor drumhead service (the traditional form for a religious service attended by troops in the field) will take place.
The parade will follow a route from Wulfruna Street to Princes Square, Lichfield Street, Queen Square and Exchange Street to St Peter’s Square. As a result, Wulfruna Street will be closed to all traffic from noon on Saturday 27 June, and there will be minor alterations to bus services along the parade route. Wulfruna Street will reopen at approximately 12.55pm.
