Armed Forces Day


The ever-popular Armed Forces Day event returns to the National Memorial Arboretum on 26 and 27 June 2021.

Armed Forces Day is the nation's chance to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.

The Arboretum will be marking this annual celebration with a Service of Thanks (26th only), a food and craft fair, and live music courtesy of two military bands.

There will also be a whole host of fun activities for the whole family to enjoy, including climbing walls, a free-drop airbag, Red Arrows simulator, RAF rocket launchers, a WWII assault course and much more.

This event is free to attend, but please remember to pre-book your visit to the Arboretum before you begin your journey as capacity is limited. This can be done online at


  • Free. Pre-booking required, visit for further information and to book.
