SHAPE-UK ‘Remember Us’ Armed Forces Day

Bradford City Hall
Norfolk Gardens

Our events always recognise the different types of work our Armed Forces (AF) are involved in. This year we will continue to highlight the AF services to the Crown and the Commonwealth Contribution in WW1 & WW2 and other campaigns. We will have a military historian who will display military memorabilia and resources to help people understand the AF. We will display photographs of the different types of work the AF are involved in globally such as peacekeeping and delivering humanitarian aid. AF units are invited to bring their respective resources for displays such as transport and military equipment and set up stalls with careers advice and even display the different types of jobs in the AF. The cadet’s organisations are also invited to take part in the event. We will have stalls where people of all ages can take part in activities arranged by AF volunteers/reservists. We will create a film about the AF and the commonwealth contribution that will play on the big screen in Centenary Square. Local Armed Forces (AF) Units will have their own stall/ display. We will provide beverages cakes etc for these units and the public and set up a display in City Hall. The public can also offer their appreciation by signing a book to say offer their individual thanks & contribution to the AF. This will then be digitised and the original kept in City Hall. We will also have a stage/platform area where local people informally socialise with the Armed Forces community and offer their appreciation to the AF in person.
