Felixstowe — 24–25 June 2017
Suffolk Armed Forces Weekend 2017
The seaside resort of Felixstowe has been chosen to host this year’s Suffolk Armed Forces event and will welcome service personnel, their families, the local community and visitors alike to celebrate the contribution made by our Armed Forces past and present.
The weekend’s activities will be linked to a 350th anniversary celebration of an earlier feat of arms which saw the fore-runners of the Royal Marines defeat a larger Dutch force at the battle for Landguard Fort in Felixstowe in 1667.
The weekend will have something for everyone including special displays, live music with everything from choirs and military bands to pop and rock, food stalls, cadet competitions, family activities, fireworks and exciting battle re-enactments – and more. All this by Felixstowe’s fantastic seaside with all that has to offer as well!
