Armed Forces Day

Wolverhampton — 27 June 2020

City of Wolverhampton Armed Forces Day

12:00 pm to 4:30 pm

On Armed Forces Day, West Park will be buzzing with activities for people of all ages as it becomes the focus of family celebrations between 12noon and 4.30pm.

The event kicks off with a military parade featuring local serving personnel which will begin in West Park at 1pm led by the RAF Cosford Band. There will be live music from a variety of genres including The Voice star Megan Reece and energetic tribute band The Copicats playing mix of indie, soul, funk, rock and pop.

This free family fun event, hosted by Dicky Dodd from Signal 107, will also feature a fun fair, street food traders, bars, escape room, laser tag, climbing wall, nerf target range, face painting and an appearance from Wolves FC mascots Wolfie and Wendy.

There will also be demonstrations from the city’s cadet groups and military forces in the event arena and the chance to meet and chat with our local armed forces as well as information stands, so there really is something for the whole family!

The finale of the event will be a skydiving display from The Wings Parachute Display Team which takes place at 4pm (weather permitting) with four parachutists jumping from a helicopter and landing into the event arena.
