Fun for all the family at Armed Forces Day this weekend.

Posted on:

There’s fun for all ages with the Armed Forces Day celebrations at Himley Hall on Sunday 26 June.

The free event, run by Dudley Council and supported by Fieldings Auctioneers and Jewson, is one of the biggest celebrations of the armed forces in the region.

It runs from 11am to 5pm and is set to include a paintball gallery, a vintage military vehicle display and dance lesson taster sessions hosted by All About Swing. There will also be Lily & Lolly's Ultimate Vintage & Craft Fayres, a 1940s style tea room, vintage fairground rides and much more.

There will also be a climbing wall, archery and rifle range for people to try.

Councillor Sue Greenaway, Mayor of Dudley, said:

We’re really privileged to host this event every year. We have very strong local links with the armed forces and it makes this event even more meaningful for us.
There’s lots for all the family to see and do and I’m really looking forward to the parachute display which is always really exciting. I hope people come along and show their support for our braved armed forces.
