Taking place on Saturday 30th June – Sunday 1st July 2018 at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Burton-Upon-Trent, the Armed Forces Weekend is set to be a great family-friendly event. Visitors to the celebratory weekend are welcomed to show their support for our country’s Armed Forces, whilst enjoying an activity-packed, action filled day out in this beautiful Staffordshire setting.
The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance; a spiritually uplifting place which honours the fallen, recognises service and sacrifice, and fosters pride in our country. It is a living and lasting memorial.
