Armed Forces Day

Armed Forces Day National Event, centred this year on spectacular Falmouth harbour in Cornwall, is a chance for the whole UK to show support for our Armed Forces community – from currently serving troops to service families, members of Reserve Forces, veterans and cadets.

What we did

A weekend of live local music and entertainment on two stages, stilt walkers, a carousel, reading and art workshops,

The national event, organised by Cornwall Council alongside the Armed Forces and supported by Falmouth Town Council, also includes the pageantry of a tri-service parade, fly-pasts and a two-and-a-half-hour aerial display of aerobatics and parachuting, and an open air concert for the military with a show-stopping firework display over Falmouth harbour.

Overall, a well organised and enjoyable afternoon. It really was a cracking little seaside show.
