Armed Forces Day

Unfortunately, following the announcement by the Government on Monday 14 June that step 4 of the roadmap out of COVID-19 restrictions will now be delayed, we are deeply disappointed to announce the cancellation of Wakefield's Armed Forces Day 2021.

This is due to the size and popularity of the event, which can attract 20,000 plus visitors on the day, exceeding the 4,000 visitor limit required to meet the prevailing COVID safety guidelines.

The event, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday 26 June 2021, marks the outstanding contribution that our Armed Forces make to the country with a full day of entertainment and activities.

Be assured that the event will return in 2022, bigger and better than before.
