Armed Forces Day Proms in the Park
Rushcliffe Borough Council marks Armed Forces Day, a nationwide celebration to honour the work of the British armed forces, past and present.
In 2017 our Armed Forces Day celebration will take place on Saturday 24 June in Bridgford Park, West Bridgford. There'll be performances throughout the day from local singers and bands leading up to our 'last night of the proms' concert at 7pm with Nottingham Concert Band. Proms is not just about the music though as we’ll also have lots of great displays from local community groups as well as free have-a-go sports activities to keep younger audience members occupied. Around the park there will also be lots of family friendly attractions including fairground rides and garden games. A licensed bar and various food outlets will on site or you are welcome to bring your own picnic.
Rushcliffe Borough Council are delighted to announce our official charity for this year's Armed Forces Days Proms in the Park is the Defence National Rehabilitation Centre, a £300 million facility opening in 2018 at Stanford Hall in Stanford on Soar.
