Armed Forces Day celebrations and parade in Herefordshire

The June 29 event promises a day filled with community spirit, commemorative activities, and family-friendly fun.

It will kick off with a parade at midday, starting from the town’s Tenbury Road car park and marching through the town.

The parade will be a spectacular sight, showcasing proud cadets, youth groups and veterans from all over Herefordshire, with all veterans welcome to join in to honour the men and women of our armed forces.

At 12.30pm, there will be a special service at St Peter’s Church, offering a moment of reflection and gratitude for the sacrifices made by military personnel. The day is set aside to honour the men and women who currently serve in all our armed forces.

Following the service, the parade will return through the town to the town green. Mini Union Flags will be supplied for the public to wave and join in the spirit of the day. The town green will then transform into a hub of activities, including face painting, balloon modelling, activities for families and children and entertainment for all ages.

Bromyard’s independent shops and cafes will be flying their Union Flags and look forward to welcoming visitors from all over to Bromyard, with locally made produce. The Market Square will be home to a unique military vehicle for all to see and to draw visitors to all areas of the town.

Mayor of Bromyard, Mark Franklin, said: “We are immensely proud to host Herefordshire’s Armed Forces Day 2024.

“I would also like to pay tribute to the families of those who serve or have served. Herefordshire has a strong connection to the armed forces and Bromyard is proud to be honouring that.”
