National Armed Forces Day event in Scarborough ***POSTPONED***

It is with regret that we advise you that Scarborough Borough Council and its partners will be unable to host the Armed Forces Day National Event planned for 27 June this year.
We are hoping to reschedule the event and will provide further updates in due course.

The extra pressure placed on ourselves and our colleagues in the emergency and public services at the present time in extreme circumstances means that the planning and staging of such a significant national event is not possible.

Cllr Tony Randerson, cabinet member with responsibility for the delivery of the event said:
“While I am sure you will be as disappointed as we are, you will understand the reason why this decision has been taken and for the need for the services to be focusing their attentions on the current exceptional issues facing the country.

"We’d like to thank everyone who has been involved in working towards the event so far and ask for patience while we work with the Ministry of Defence to consider future options.
"In the meantime, I wish you all well over this difficult period.”





Scarborough will be hosting this years Armed Forces Day National Event. Join us for another memorable day to ‘show your support’ and to say thank you to the men and women of the British Armed Forces community that includes serving personnel and their families, veterans and the cadet forces.

Armed Forces Day in Scarborough will be held on the Saturday 27th June 2020. Our event is one of hundreds held across the country, to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.


‘National Armed Forces day is usually attended by a Senior Royal and The Prime Minister.
The day will feature an array of land, sea and air assets.
