Living Magazines DBC armed-forces-day-2022

Dacorum Borough Council is organising an in-person Armed Forces Day event for the first time since 2019, as the coronavirus outbreak put a temporary stop to live events.

The event will be coming to Gadebridge Park, Hemel Hempstead on Saturday 25 June between 12.30-8.30pm.

The Armed Forces Day event is an opportunity for both ourselves and residents to show gratitude and appreciation for past, present and future military forces from air, land and sea units.

The event is free to enter and has something for all the family to enjoy.

There will be an exciting programme of free entertainment, the line-up includes the RLC Silver Stars Army Parachute Display Team, Misselchalke Gundogs,  Falconry Show, The Polka Dots (1940’s Duo), Flying Act Stilt Walkers, Mini Tank Act and more.

There will also be inflatables and adventure equipment for everyone to enjoy plus stalls, stands and activities in the park.

Cllr Julie Banks, Portfolio Holder for Communities, said: ‘I’m proud to mark this national celebration of the contribution made by our Armed Forces. For the last couple of years, Covid-19 restrictions meant that activities had to take place ‘digitally’ but this year we have a host of fun packed live activities planned.

‘I encourage members of our local community to join us in our beautiful Gadebridge Park to show their support and enjoy the day’s spectacular entertainment.’
