​This is a FREE event for all taking place at West Park.

The City of Wolverhampton is gearing up for a free event for all the family to mark the national Armed Forces Day celebrations.

Armed Forces Day, on Saturday 25 June, is a chance for people to show their support for the entire armed forces community – including those currently serving, their families, veterans and cadets.

The countdown to Wolverhampton’s celebrations will begin with a flag raising ceremony outside the Civic Centre at 11am on Monday 20 June, when the Armed Forces Day flag will be proudly flown.

On Armed Forces Day itself, West Park will be buzzing with activities for people of all ages as it becomes the focus of family celebrations between 12pm and 4.30pm.

There will be live music from Alex Vann, The Bluebird Belles and The Brightsides plus an Armed Forces Parade into the event arena at 1pm.

This free family fun event will also feature fun fair rides, street food traders and a bar, face painting, an appearance from Wolves FC mascot Wolfie and an escape room. There will also be the chance to meet and chat with local forces as well as information stands.

The finale of the event will be a skydiving display from The Wings Parachute Display Team which takes place at 4.30pm (weather permitting), with 4 parachutists jumping from a helicopter and landing into the event field.
