The national event of Armed Forces Day will be hosted by Salisbury in 2019, a brilliant honour for a place steeped in military history. Come down and show your support for the past, present and future of the Armed Forces and its community. Enjoy street food, military displays, army charities stalls, workshops and live music from acts.
Salisbury and the whole of Wiltshire will have a chance to celebrate and say thank you to our Armed Forces at the three-day Armed Forces Day event, from 28-30 June.
Most of the event will be hosted on Hudson’s Field in the city, but a major part of the national celebrations will be a military parade through the city centre on the morning of Saturday 29 June, which is National Armed Forces Day. This will be a significant spectacle attracting thousands of people to the city and showcasing Salisbury nationally and internationally.
Due to the size of the parade, involving military personnel and vehicles, roads in Salisbury city centre will have to be closed for logistical and security reasons from 6am until 2pm on Saturday 29 June 2019. This will affect some businesses and residents in the city, as vehicular access to their home or business may be restricted; this includes parking and deliveries. Full details of road closures and FAQs can be found at www.wiltshire.gov.uk/salisbury-afd
