Rotherham — 29 June 2019
Rotherham Armed Forces Day
Every year Rotherham holds an Armed Forces Day in the town centre. This year it will be held on Saturday, 29th June.
The celebrations will feature a packed programme of military demonstrations and family entertainment. The event, led by Rotherham Council, will get underway with a military parade through the town centre followed by a service of worship in All Saint’s Square.
There will be displays of military vehicles and weapons. Entertainment will be provided by a variety of singers and performers, and there will be First and Second World War
re-enactors as well as walkabout acts.
For children, there will be face painters, balloon modellers and an inflatable helter skelter slide.
Our Armed Forces Day celebrations will conclude with a Sunset Ceremony, led by local military personnel.
There will also be a musical extravaganza with a spectacular concert held in Rotherham Minster – this year on the eve of Armed Forces Day (Friday, 28th June).
Rotherham is easily accessed by the M1 and M18 as well as by public transport.
