Weston-super-Mare Armed Forces Weekend

Weston-super-Mare Armed Forces Weekend are pleased and proud to announce that the HM Royal Marines Band (Plymouth) will open the Armed Forces Weekend on Saturday 22nd June!

The Parade will leave the Grand Pier on Weston Promenade at 12:00 midday and proceed along the Promenade to the Armed Forces Village arena on the Beach Lawns opposite Flowerdown House and Somerset Legion House for the Opening Ceremony in the presence of the Town Mayor.

Weston Armed Forces Weekend in conjunction with our friends from Weston Air Festival, provides arguably the biggest and best Free to Enter Armed Forces Event in the South-West.

Since 2014 we have been working together with the Air Festival Team to bring you an exciting, exhilarating and interesting weekend and have rapidly increased our reputations, attracting a regular attendance of over 200,000 visitors.

Weston Armed Forces Weekend starts on Saturday with the Parade along the Seafront and an Opening Ceremony in the arena led by HM Royal Marines Band. This is followed by two days of demonstrations, displays, competitions and musical items, celebrating all sections of our Armed Forces Community.

We also have many stalls, stands and displays, you can visit in our “Armed Forces Village” showcasing the Regular and Reserve Forces, Associations and Veteran Organisations, the Cadet Forces and much more.

On Sunday afternoon, our Weekend closes with a Service of Reflection, Muster of Participants and “Sunset Ceremony” whilst during the whole weekend, exhilarating Aerial Displays take place in the skies overhead, including the World Famous “Red Arrows” Aerobatic Display Team.

Why not come and join us and have fun celebrating our “Armed Forces Community”?
