Weymouth — 17–19 June 2017
Weymouth and Portland Armed Forces Celebrations
- 41 The Esplanade,
The 2017 Weymouth and Portland Armed Forces Celebrations will take place from Saturday 17th June to Friday 23rd June, with the Service and Parade on Sunday 18th June on Weymouth Esplanade.
2017 marks the 50th Anniversary of the withdrawal of all British Forces from Aden and with this in mind, the Aden Veterans Association will lead the Parade of all Veterans along the Weymouth Esplanade.
The historic military vehicles and re-enactors continue to be a Festival favourite and we look forward to working with these members once again.
The Armed Forces and our Veterans have made and continue to make a major contribution to our Nation. The Weymouth and Portland Event will honour, celebrate and provide a focus on the tireless work carried out by all Veteran Associations, individuals and today’s Military Forces.
With a host of displays and information available, Military personnel and Veterans will be able to discover and receive the support from the various agencies and charity organisations; and visitors to the event will be able to learn, appreciate and support the important role played by, and recognise the diversity of, the Armed Forces, veterans and all service associations.
