Armed Forces Day 2021

Saturday June 26, 2021.

The Covid situation over the past two years put an end to any hopes of Swindon hosting an event to celebrate our Armed Forces this summer, but with the club unashamedly proud to support British Armed Forces, we are happy to report that there are two other fairly local events still going ahead – at Chipping Sodbury (31 miles away) and Tidworth (26 miles) – both of which are great family events for everyone to enjoy!

Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community – from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.

Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much-valued morale boost for the troops and their families and although Armed Forces Day is not a charitable event, the Armed Forces have the support of several UK charities and many local events will offer opportunities to support them.


Chipping Sodbury – 10:30am through 4pm takes place at The Ridings, Wickwar Road, Chipping Sodbury, BS37 6GA.

Tidworth – 12pm through 5pm takes place at Humber Lane, Tidworth, SP9 7AH.
