Free family fun day to mark

Armed Forces Day - Saturday 24th June 2023

From noon to 4.30pm at West Park

The City of Wolverhampton Armed Forces Day 2023 takes place on Saturday 24 June from noon to 4.30pm at West Park and promises to be a great day of free entertainment for all the family in celebration of our Armed Forces and all they do for the city and our country.

This year’s event is sponsored by local business Collins Aerospace – make sure you visit their stall at the event in West Park which will be buzzing with activities for people of all ages.

As well as focusing on family fun throughout the day, there will also be live music from The Bluebird Belles plus an Armed Forces Parade marching into the event arena at 1pm.

This free family fun event will also feature funfair rides, street food traders and bar, with FREE activities including face painting, Cycle Skills Track & Smoothie Bike and an appearance from Wolves FC mascot’s Wolfie & Wendy. There will also be the chance to meet and chat with local forces as well as information stands.

A new addition to this year’s event is our IMPS Motorcycle Display Arena where the world’s premier military style motorcycle display team will perform twice during the day and will close the event at 4.30pm flying the Armed Forces Day flag in a spectacular pyramid formation. It’s not to be missed!
