Armed Forces Day



Next dates

    1. 14:00 - 17:00

Join hundreds of people as they wave their Union flags and sing along in celebration of our troops at Aldershot’s free Armed Forces Day Prom in the Park on Saturday 22 June, from 2-5pm in Princes Gardens.
The afternoon’s festivities start at 2pm, when the bar and tea tent open, alongside free children’s crafty fun, a bouncy castle, face painting and community stalls.

Between 2pm and 3pm, lindy hop dancers will take to the stage, accompanied by a local vintage swing singer.

At 3pm, the main Prom begins in the bandstand, with Rushmoor Concert Band, Farnborough Band of the Royal British Legion and local classical singer Toni Nunn, leading a toe-tapping concert of popular live music.

The prom will end in flag waving style with traditional Last Night of the Proms favourites, Rule Britannia, Jerusalem, and Land of Hope and Glory. There will also be a special interval musical performance and a speech from Aldershot’s Garrison Commander.

Programmes and flags will be available to buy on the day from our charity partners SSAFA.

To say thank you to our Armed Forces and their families, a free hot drink will be offered to visitors, on production of military ID and dependents ID cards.

This free event is organised and funded by Rushmoor Borough Council, with a grant from the Ministry of Defence and part funding from the UK Shared prosperity Fund. The event is sponsored by Toob fibre broadband and West Heath Garage, Aldershot.
