Join us for a day of celebration for our local armed forces community

Tickets are going fast but there is still time to get yours and join us for a day of celebration and appreciation for our local Buckinghamshire armed forces community.

Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Armed Forces Day takes place at Booker Air Park in High Wycombe on Saturday 29 June, from 12 noon. The day is packed with live entertainment, music and attractions including a two hour long air display.

The event is open to the general public but its main aim is to give our local armed forces a day to relax and enjoy with their families and for the public to come along in support to show their thanks and appreciation for everything our armed forces do and have done for us. It forms part of a national programme of events taking place around the country.

This year’s event is in a new venue and for the first time is also completely free but you must still register online for tickets. To book tickets visit: www.buckscc.gov.uk/armedforcesday

We still need volunteers to help on the day. If you can spare a couple of hours to help with tasks such as hospitality, car parking, selling programmes and backstage support, we would love to hear from you. Anyone aged over 14 can volunteer but under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. In return for helping out you will receive a free limited edition t-shirt and refreshments.

HM Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher said: “We are really looking forward to this year’s Armed Forces Day. We have a packed programme of music, attractions and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy, it promises to be a fantastic day out.

“We must also remember, the main purpose of the event is to celebrate and give thanks to all our armed forces personnel, both past and present, for everything that they do and have done for us. We owe them so much and this event is the perfect way to show our appreciation.”
