Armed Forces Day 2020 falls on Saturday 27th June.

What’s it about?

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. There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved.

When?

Armed Forces Day takes place on the last Saturday each June.  In 2020, it will take place on Saturday 27 June.

Armed Forces Day celebrations begin on Monday 22 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country.

Reserves Day will also provide an opportunity for the country to recognise our Reserve Forces.

Where?

Unfortunately due to the coronavirus outbreak, this years Armed Forces Day National Event hosted by Scarborough Borough Council has been cancelled.

Local events may be affected by COVID-19. Please contact the individual event organisers, using the contact details provided, for further information on specific events.

Why?

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 NavyBritish Army and Royal Air Force.

The public show their support for the Armed Forces on Armed Forces Day.

The  Armed Forces Covenant outlines how the Government, businesses and communities support Armed Forces personnel past and present throughout the year.

Who?

We’ll extend our Armed Forces Week discount to all those covered by our Armed Forces Covenant pledge:

Serving members of the Armed Forces

The UK Armed Forces defend the UK and its interests. They are busy working around the world, promoting peace, delivering aid, tackling drug smugglers, providing security and fighting terrorism.

Veterans

A veteran is anyone who has served in the HM Armed Forces at any time (including National Servicemen, Regulars and Reserves).

Reserve Forces

Reservists give up their spare time to serve in the Reserve Forces, balancing their civilian life with a military career to ensure that should their country require them, they would be ready to serve.

Cadet Forces

The Cadet Forces (Sea Cadets, Army Cadets, Air Cadets and the Combined Cadet Force) currently support over 130,000 young people in more than 3,000 locations across the UK. Cadets learn life and career building skills as well as gaining vocational qualifications. Our discount extends to cadets aged 17+ and their uniformed instructors.

Service Families

Our Armed Forces couldn’t do their job without the incredible support of their family and friends. We are happy to extend our Armed Forces discount to the immediate families of service personnel.

Charities

Although Armed Forces Day is not a charitable event, the Armed Forces have the support of several UK charities and associations. At our sole discretion, we may also extend our Armed Forces Week discount to support such organisations.
