Armed Forces Day National Event Scarborough - 26th June 2021

The Ministry of Defence has confirmed that Scarborough will host the prestigious Armed Forces Day National Event in 2021.
 
Scarborough was due to host this year’s national event from 26 to 28 June, but like many other major events, it was postponed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
 
Scarborough Borough Council has now been informed that the 2020 event will not go ahead later in the year. Scarborough’s right to host the event will instead move to the weekend of 25 to 27 June 2021.

Scarborough will be hosting the Armed Forces Day National Event 2021.

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 26th 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 and 2021 highlights include the legendary Red Arrows and the world famous Royal Marines Marching Band.

Making the event happen...

The success of the day can be attributed to many services of the Council, the Armed Forces Day Steering Group and the amazing support of volunteers who work tirelessly to make this day so special, without them this event would not be possible.


Thank you also to our main funding partner the Ministry of Defence.


We hope you will enjoy this special day and come along, enjoy the fun and say “Thank you” to our Armed Services personnel, past, present and future.
