Armed Forces Day

Newcastle upon Tyne — 27 June 2021

Armed Forces Day Picnic In The Park

11:00 am to 3:00 pm

Our Armed Forces Community will be joined by local people to celebrate Armed Forces Day and to thank the Armed Forces family for their service and dedication to our city for a ‘Picnic in the Park’ at venues across Newcastle. The event will include military displays, entertainment and the unveiling of commemorative plaques and interpretation boards that recognise the important role the Armed Forces play in our community. The event is also an opportunity for the public to thank Armed Forces personnel for their role in protecting the health and wellbeing of citizens during the current pandemic. Participants in the event will include current Armed Forces personnel, Veterans and Cadets as well as local residents and community groups and will be hosted by the Lord Mayor and Newcastle’s Armed Forces Champion.
