Armed Forces Day

Bradford — 24–29 June 2019

The Armed Forces ‘Remember Us.’

6:30 pm to 9:30 pm

Project IMPACT will be involved with the commemorating the collective contribution of people who served in the British Armed Forces. To show our appreciation for the Great sacrifices made for Great Britain we will also be remembering allied efforts from all parts of the British Commonwealth. After the flag raising ceremony at 11:00am the event will be opened by the Lord Mayor Doreen Lee. On this day there will be Armed Forces presentations and a display on the role of the Armed Forces and the different type of jobs they do. There will be an opportunity to speak to serving members of the Armed Forces. Full-time staff and reservists personnel from our local Armed Forces units will be present to share stories and experiences of serving and ex-serving personnel. We will also invite local serving personnel who may be stationed far away from Bradford to come and share the day with us. Inside City Hall, an Armed Forces Historian will give a talk on WWII and an Exhibition of artefacts and memorabilia from World War 1 & 2 will show how wars were fought all over the world by British Forces to appreciate our freedom today. Activities such as STEM and Armed Forces-based theoretical and physical challenges will be shown as part of the work Project IMPACT does with the Armed Forces. This event is open to the public. Individuals with a ticket will have priority due to limited capacity. The event is especially good for school/ community organisations and those who are working towards community cohesion and building community relations. Please book your tickets online below.
