Armed Forces Day 2017
The Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Armed Forces Day 2017 event will be returning to Aylesbury Rugby Club on Saturday 17 June 2017.
It will be a big celebratory family friendly fun day event packed with air displays, live music, live sport, attractions, craft stalls and also the Guinness World Record attempt for the largest Swing Dance.
The aim is put on an event that welcomes not only the wider Armed Forces Family working and living in Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes but to all residents in the area.
It is our chance to show our support for the Armed Forces Community, from Serving Personnel to Forces Families and Cadets. It is also an opportunity to raise public awareness of the contribution made to our country by those who serve and who have served in Her Majesty's Armed Forces.
