Armed Forces Day

24th June 2023

Medway will show its ongoing support for our armed forces at the Armed Forces Day on Saturday, 24 June.

We are pleased to announce that Armed Forces Day will once again be celebrated in Medway with a special gathering of the Armed Forces and Veterans on the Great Lines Heritage Park in Gillingham on Saturday 24 June.

As always this will be a free entry event for the entire community.

Activities will include the traditional Military and Veterans parade, a drumhead service, armed forces display’s, forces charities, band concerts, historic military vehicles, arena displays, a family funfair and the immensely popular Veterans Hospitality Area.  All in all, we have a good old-fashioned community event planned in tribute to the ‘Armed Forces Family’.
