Somerset Armed Forces Day:
The organisers of Somerset Armed Forces Day are asking everyone to make sure you pop this date in your diaries! This event will be the biggest and best day out in Somerset this year. They say they have ordered beautiful weather for the day (cross fingers) to enable everyone to stroll around the park, have fun, be entertained and have the best experience.
The event will be completely FREE to attend for all the family with a huge variety of stalls, exhibitions, military vehicles, military personnel. Plus, a very exciting timetable of displays in our main arena. This will include helicopters, parachutes, tanks, Taunton Military Wives Choir, and a wonderful singer Kirsten Orsborn who is The Royal Marines Forces Sweetheart. There will be plenty to entertain you for the whole day!
Don’t worry about getting hungry. There will be delicious food and drink concessions, including the famous Hook & Cook Barbecue from Cullen’s Catering. Also, plenty of bars for Real Ale, Local Ciders etc
Somerset Armed Forces Day will be a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces. This year, we will join people across Somerset to say “thank you” to members of the Armed Forces community – including current personnel, reserves, veterans, cadets and families – for their contribution to the nation.
The show will be opened by Somerset Armed Forces Day Champion, Deborah Meaden.
Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much-valued morale boost for the troops and their families. You can find out more about what they are doing at home and around the world by visiting the official sites of the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.
