Date: Friday 24th June - Sunday 26th June 2022
The Ministry of Defence has confirmed that Scarborough will now host the prestigious Armed Forces Day National Event in 2022.
Scarborough was due to host this year’s national event from 25 to 27 June 2021, but unfortunately, like many other major events, it was postponed until 24 - 26 June 2022 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The council has welcomed the news and as soon as practicable, it will resume its planning for the event with the Ministry of Defence, other key partners and sponsors.
The national event attracts around 200,000 visitors of all ages during the course of the weekend. It boasts an action packed event programme, including spectacular air and ground displays and an extensive military parade. Previous national events have attracted people from across the country and beyond, including VIP guests such as members of the Royal family and prime ministers.
