Armed Forces Day

Manchester — 27 June 2020

Manchester Armed Forces Day – A Big Thank You

11:00 am to 4:00 pm

This is the 6th consecutive year that Manchester has hosted an Armed Forces Day event in St Peters Square. The event recognises the contribution made across the armed forces and we have developed ‘A BIG THANK YOU’ for their services and sacrifices. Serving personal from the Navy, Army and Air Force along with cadets and veterans will parade through the square.

There will be military displays including photographs and personnel recounting their involvement . These displays will cover various campaigns and focus on the diversity of Armed Forces personnel. Military equipment such as tanks and transporters will be on display along with an interactive elements RAF cockpit.

Various military charities and veterans’ groups including The British Legion, RAFA and help for the heroes will be present to explain how they support active and veteran armed forces members and their families in the local community.

There will be a mix of military bands and live performers – with military links – providing live music to ensure it is a great day out for all the family in the heart of our city.

Come along to say ‘thank you’ and honour the outstanding contribution made by current members
of the Armed Forces and veterans of all ages.
