Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community. This year, we will join people across Somerset to say "thank you" to members of the Armed Forces community - including current personnel, reserves, veterans, cadets and families - for their contribution to the nation.

Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much valued morale boost for the troops and their families. You can find out more about what they are doing at home and around the world by visiting the official sites of the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of Somerset West & Taunton Council and other local companies and organisations.

Please note: 

In line with government advice to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we have taken the decision to cancel our Taunton and Somerset Armed Forces Day event on 4 July.

We have not made this decision lightly and while we appreciate that this will be disappointing news, we hope you understand that the health and safety of our traders, visitors and staff is paramount.

There are currently no plans to reschedule this event for 2020, instead we will focus on bringing you a very special event to celebrate our Armed Forces in 2021.

Thank you for your understanding and for your support and please heed government advice and stay safe at this difficult time. #staysafestayhome
