Armed Forces Day Festival Poster

Enjoy a family festival day of music, activities and talks!

We will be celebrating with a star line up of music, featuring the Jive Aces, a six-piece high energy, jive and swing band, The Polka Dot Dolls, a vintage vocal harmony trio sure to get toes tapping and skirts swishing, the North London Military Wives Choir and the RAF Halton Voluntary Band.

Entertainment and activities will also include:

  • 100 years of uniform! – here the whole family will be able to dress in uniform worn throughout the last 100 year and take a souvenir photo
  • Craft Activities – kids (and maybe even adults too!) can get inventive and get crafty with an arty activity
  • Talks & Tours – delve into history and learn more about the RAF
  • A reading of 'Sisters in Spitfires' by poet Alison Hill under our very own Spitfire 

It promises to be a day for the whole family to enjoy.
