Armed Forces Day

Beverley — 5 July 2020

Beverley Armed Forces Day

10:00 am to 4:00 pm

This is the 11th consecutive year that Beverley has been proud to host an Armed Forces Day event. We will recognise the contribution made across the armed forces and thank them for their services and sacrifices. Members from the Navy, Army and Air Force as well as Cadets will parade through the town centre.

There will be military displays including photographs and personnel recounting their involvement by. These displays will cover campaigns in the World Wars and more recently, the Falklands, Afghanistan and UN deployments. Military equipment such as Land Rovers and a SVR Recovery Truck will be on display.

Cadets from each Service will have a stand and will profile the training opportunities they offer. Various military charities and veterans’ groups including SSAFA, The British Legion and the NGVA will be present to explain how they support active and veteran armed forces members and their families in the local community. Reservists will have a stand to explain how they function, combining military and civilian life and highlighting the important support provided by local employers. Bands from across our region will provide live music to ensure that the day is an uplifting experience for all visitors.
