On Saturday 1st July 2023 Beverley Armed Forces Day will return to Normandy Barracks after being held in Beverley’s town centre in recent years. We are planning a larger than ever event and will be inviting people from across the whole of East Yorkshire to attend. There will be a wide range of activities and displays for all age groups including families, and we invite you to join us in recognising the contribution made from across the armed forces and thank them for their services and sacrifices. Members from the Navy, Army and Air Force as well as cadets and Veterans will be present. There will be military displays and personnel recounting their involvement in campaigns from the World Wars through to more recent deployments in Afghanistan. An extensive range of military equipment will be on display and visitors will be able to actively participate in a number of activities if they wish. Various military charities and veterans’ groups including SSAFA, The British Legion, CESA and the NGVA will all be present to explain how they support active and veteran armed forces members and their families in our local communities. Reservists will have a stand to explain how they function; combining military and civilian life, and we will have displays by many of our supporting local employers.

There will be ample parking on site and we are looking to put on transport to and from Beverley town centre. We look forward to welcoming you to Normandy Barracks. Please put Saturday, 1st July in your diaries!
