Armed Forces Day 2017 24th June 2017 - 24th June 2017

Join in on Saturday 24th June 2017 at Lancaster Castle as the district comes together to celebrate our Armed Forces.

Events and activities include exhibitions, local cadets, climbing wall, historic military vehicles, heroes raffle draw, war-gaming, army reserves and jazz band performances.

Lancaster Castle will host the Saturday show on 25 June 2017.

Morecambe Promenade will be the venue for Sunday 26 June 2017.


Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets. 

Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much valued morale boost for the troops and their families. You can find out more about what they are doing at home and around the world by visiting the official sites of the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.

There will be representatives from Royal Navy, Army Reserves, Cadets, historic vehicles, military models, live music, have-a-go activities, demonstrations and more.

All funds raised on the day will go to major Service charities.
