Armed Forces Day

Burton-on-Trent — 29–30 June 2024

Armed Forces Weekend

Armed Forces Weekend at the National Memorial Arboretum will build on last year’s successful two day format to recognise the service of our Armed Forces to the Nation. The NMA’s programme for the weekend is about people of all ages and backgrounds (service personnel, civilian services and local communities) coming together to share and recognise the vital contribution of our Armed Forces. As a national site and part of the Royal British Legion, the event forms part of a high-quality programme of annual events held at the Arboretum. Our event is fully aligned with the objectives of Armed Forces Day and our mix of visitors from the serving military family, veterans and civilians from all walks of life allow us to celebrate and pay tribute to those who serve our nation with a wide and diverse audience. Run over two days this year’s event is likely to be one of the largest and will include activities such as
our Daily act of Remembrance, Stories of tribute and daily activities for all the family.
