Hosted by the mayor of Leeds, the event is part of a national day celebrating the courage and contribution of the Armed Forces past and present.
There will be something for all ages on offer, including:
• a veterans parade and salute that will take place on Briggate, enabling the public to show their thanks and support for these brave men and women
• a full programme of entertainment – including a two hour concert performed by the fantastic West Yorkshire Police Band
• a huge range of free family-friendly activities, including a climbing wall, flight simulator, arts, crafts, face painting and much more
• an array of displays, military vehicles and military related stalls
• the chance to suit up in real military kit and get up close with some of the weaponry used on the battlefield
• stalls with information about welfare, education and services for service personnel, past and present – and their families
• the opportunity to speak with a range of military charities and veterans groups, and to hear their inspiring stories
Don't miss out - bring your friends and family and join us for a fantastic day to remember!
