Since 2009, Armed Forces Day has been marked annually with events large and small throughout the UK. In support of this event, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) is providing funding to help organisations and individuals in the UK host an Armed Forces Day event this summer.
Last year, events took place in all parts of England, Scotland,
Wales and Northern Ireland. They included Armed Forces Day tea
parties, parades, big band concerts, civil war military
re-enactments and live and static demonstrations.
Local councils, organisations, schools, ex-service organisations
and individuals in the UK are eligible to apply for a grant of up
to £10,000 (providing the MoD accounts for no more that 50 per cent
of the project costs).
The event should be held on or in the weeks around
National Armed Forces
Day which will be celebrated on Saturday 30 June
2018 with a major national event to be held in the historic North
Wales seaside town of Llandudno, and local events will be held
across the UK.
Groups need to
register their event
before they can access the funding criteria.
The deadline for applications is 30 April 2018.
