Weymouth Armed Forces Celebrations
One event on 19th June 2022 at 12:00 am
Our Armed Forces and veterans have made and continue to make a significant contribution to our nation and the Weymouth event will continue to honour, celebrate the tireless work carried out by all veterans associations, individuals and today’s military forces.
With a host of displays and information available during the weekend, veterans and families will be able to discover and receive the support available from the various agencies and organisations. Visitors to the event will be able to learn, appreciate and support the important role played; and recognise the diversity of the Armed Forces, veterans and all service associations.
On the Saturday, over 60 historic military vehicles will arrive on Weymouth seafront for an interactive display with the public being able view and share stories. The day will also feature music of the era and veterans awareness stands.
Sunday’s event will be more formal, with an outdoor Service and Parade at the Weymouth Cenotaph. Annually more than 1,500 participants are formed up with the Service area. The Service is hosted by the Mayor of Weymouth with the Lord Lieutenant of Dorset in attendance. Following the Service, the parade of standards and veterans, cadet divisions and historic vehicles take places.
The Seafront route is lined with spectators who give a heart-warming cheer as the Parade passes through. Each division is led along the Seafront by a marching band.
These bands undertake performances throughout the afternoon with the stage beside the historic military vehicles display for all to view.
If you would like to participate in the Service and Parade on Sunday 19th June, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
