Armed Forces Day in Preston

Armed Forces Day

The day begins at 11.00am with a formal service of celebration, including Military bands and the city's veterans, officially declaring the event open.

There will be various military equipment on display around the Flag Market including a spitfire and Challenger tank all supplied by two local military museums, the veterans association and local and national charities.

There will also be a fairground for the children.

Plus other attractions and stalls! More details on the Armed Forces Day poster you can download from this page.

Fingers crossed for a flyby this year!

Armed Forces Day has been organised by Councillor Drew Gale and is sponsored by the North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce. The day celebrates the city’s serving soldiers, their families and Preston's connection with the armed forces.
