Armed Forces Day 2019

Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.

There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved, from attending an event or joining us online to throwing a party or local event.

Armed Forces Day celebrations begin on Monday 24 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country.

The Ministry of Defence have requested that flags are flown to celebrate the start of Armed Forces Week and Salford will be joining the nation in tribute to the country’s armed forces community.  

Join us for a small ceremony taking place on the front steps of Swinton Town Hall, Chorley Road, Swinton, M27 5FJ from 10.30am on Monday 24th June 2019 to honour our armed forces community.

At the rise of the ceremony light refreshments will be available in the Salford Suite at the Civic Centre.

Winton Festival will again be supporting Salford’s Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29th June 2019 to show our support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to service families to honour the men, women and their families of our country’s veterans and cadets.

The Festival is proud to support Armed Forces Day with a number of fun activities planned. Forming part of the event will be a Parade; starting from Dukes Drive Car Park, off Parrin Lane, Monton, Eccles @ 10.30am, concluding at Winton Park, Dover Street, Winton.
