Armed Forces Day, the national event hosted by Cornwall

Armed Forces Day is one of the UK’s most important annual events. It’s a day to celebrate and thank the military community for everything that they do to keep us safe. This year this national event will be hosted in Cornwall.

Falmouth will be the centrepiece for the country’s celebrations (June 24 & June 25), with more Armed Forces Day events taking place around the world.

Visitors can expect to see Top Gun style displays from the Red Arrows and the precision and aerobatic capabilities of helicopter stunt teams. Along with the parades and service drills there’s a chance to see a range of military vehicles up close. The whole event is free and includes a tour of a naval ship if you book via the website in
