Wales Armed Forces Day

Wales Armed Forces Day will take place on June 18 this year and here’s a look at what in store for you to enjoy whilst we all show our support for the men and women who make up the armed forces community.

The day begins at 10am on Bodhyfryd for a march complete with marching band around the town centre! Representatives of all three forces will be marching and will be accompanied by cadets and of course veterans from across North Wales.

Following that and until 4pm There’ll be entertainment for all the family along with displays and exhibitions. Live music will be provided by The Royal Welsh Band, Ifton Colliery Band and other local music groups with The Big beat ending entertainment before the closing ceremony and there’ll be an onsite bar and refreshments.

Veterans who want to take part in the parade should form up on Bodhyfryd at 10am

Cllr David Griffiths, Armed Forces Champion, said, “We’re making these plans as we all watch and listen with horror the events that are taking place in Ukraine right now. It serves as a sad reminder of why we value our armed forces so much and just how much we owe them for their past and present service.

“I hope as many people as possible from across North Wales attend to thank them and their families for their continued service to our country.”

Due to the ongoing situation the schedule and activities may be altered and we’ll let you know if this happens.
