Armed Forces Day Celebration

Armed Forces Day Celebration – Saturday 26th June 2021 between 12pm-9.30pm.

Location: Widdrington Station Community Park

Date/Tme: Saturday 26th June 2021, 12pm-9.30pm

Cost: FOC

**Live music, onsite catering and bar**


This event we had to cancel due to Covid restrictions last year. It will be held in our community park and will not only be a celebration of our Armed Forces, past and present but also our first event that will enable our community to come together once again after what can only be described as an extremely trying past 12 months.


A marquee will be erected followed by the stage and lighting and this will be managed by a 3rd party events company. We anticipate that they will start to erect this on Saturday morning.


The event will run from approximately 12pm till 9.30pm and to minimise any noise after 9.30pm we will leave the marquee in situ and there will be a Security Company based in the park throughout the night. On Sunday morning the events company will return to pack up their marque and equipment.


There will be catering onsite throughout the event serving a varied menu as well as bar serving beer, wine and soft drinks (No spirits will be available) First Aid cover will be present throughout the event as will portable toilets. More details will be provided at a later date.


This is a FREE event for our community (Provided by the Widdrington Station and Stobswood Parish Council) and covers all age groups, hopefully everyone can come along and enjoy being part of a community event once again.


If there are any stall holders wishing to take part, you are more than welcome. All we ask is that you provide your table and possibly a gazebo, the areas will be marked out for your stands prior to arrival. If you need to borrow a table from the community centre please ensure you make this request directly to us, as we only have a limited supply. We ask that any stall holder make a contribution of £5 which will be going towards our Food Bank services.


This this event like many others nationwide, depends on restrictions not being imposed again, hopefully by this date we are fast approaching a total lift of any restrictions.


During the event there will be the need for generators and there will be noise from the live music and those attending during 12pm and 9.30pm and we apologise in advance if this causes any upset on the day, but this is a fantastic event for all ages to come together as a community again after the latest lockdowns that we have all endured.


Please get in touch if you require any further details, a more detailed itinerary will be made available soon. Looking forward to seeing you all on the day.


Many Thanks
