London — 29 June 2024

Woolwch Armed Forces Day

Barrack Field
London SE18

This will be the only major Armed Forces Day in London. It will revive the event in Woolwich on its historic location after 6 years. The units at Woolwich ( the Kings Troop, the Royal Artillery and 1 PWRR are backing the event) and are providing Barrack Field as its venue. The Council for the Royal Borough of Greenwich is supportive and has assigned a Senior Officer to assist with the planning and organisation. The events are being organised by 2 teams, one of which is concentrating solely on the military side ( Ride Past by the Kings Troop, Parachute Drop, military hardware and recruiting stalls.) The non-military team is concentrating on bands, a 5 a side football competition, theatre, displays and a big name final concert . The event is for all and we are planning for a footfall in the thousands
