See what took place at Armed Forces Day 2019. Plymouth is planning two events in 2020 to celebrate the armed forces and commemorate both the 75th anniversary of VE Day and Mayflower 400, with Armed Forces Day returning in 2021.

Saturday 29 June 2019 | 10am to 10.30pm

A spectacular and exciting day of entertainment, with parades, military and veteran villages, an air display, live music, field gun competitions and activities for the whole family.
