Manchester Armed Forces Day – A Big Thank You
The event offers a chance for people of all ages to show their appreciation and support for the Armed Forces and veterans. Service personnel and their families from across Manchester will be invited to either participate or enjoy the event. The event is now in it’s fifth year at St Peter’s Square is intend to have plenty of activities for all ages. The activities will be military-themed with visitors being able to sit in the cockpit of a real RAF Jet Provost cockpit, wear real military kit, try their hand at radio communications, discover Armed Forces cooking and enjoy a range of stage music. We also intend to have military hardware on display along with multi-media displays celebrating the diversity of our Armed Forces. As with previous years we will look to invite the Lord Lieutenant to open the event and inspect a parade of veterans and service personnel.
