The Isle of Man’s Armed Forces Day 2023 is a chance to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. Our Day will begin at 13:00 when the gardens of the Villa Marina open to the public. On display will be a range of stalls featuring Armed Forces’ charities and a children’s funfair. Visitors will also be entertained by live incidental music and various food concessions. The main feature of the day will be a parade of serving personnel, veterans, cadet organisations and other uniformed organisations on the Island, which will begin at 14:00 – the Lieutenant Governor of the Isle of Man will take the salute.

At 17:00, the outside entertainment will close and the inside of the Villa Marina will open for a free buffet tea in the Colonnade and Promenade Suites. The bar will open at 17:00 and close at 18:30. The day will end at 19:00.
