Armed Forces Day 2019 takes place this Saturday in Liverpool. You may have noticed our civic buildings illuminated in red, white and blue and some very special military assets have arrived at the Royal Albert Dock.
Saturday 29th June is officially Armed Forces Day and there’s a whole programme of events planned for the city. A traditional parade featuring military bands and members of the tri-services will march along The Strand, a proud moment for any Scouser in uniform. Afterwards the Royal Albert Dock will host an afternoon of free, family friendly activities with something for everyone. Head this way for the full run down of what’s on this Armed Forces Day.
To celebrate all serving members of the armed forces and veterans, a number of Liverpool brands and organisations are offering their own unique thanks in the form of a discount, deal or promotion. Available throughout Armed Forces Week, the likes of Arriva, Yard & Coop and Disney have come together to offer a special treat.
Donna Howitt, Marketing Director at Liverpool ONE, said: “Many of our retailers at Liverpool ONE have pledged their support by offering special discounts and we’re thrilled to be marking such a special day. We’re extremely proud to join the city in celebrating those who have served our country and honouring those who are serving today.”
