Celebrating Britain's Armed Forces; past, present and future.
Armed Forces Week is Blackpool's opportunity to say thank you to our heroes. For a whole week, the resort comes together, welcoming serving military personnel, veterans and cadets, along with the many thousands of people visiting Blackpool.
Some of the exciting events include:
Get ready to jitterbug, jive, swing and lindy hop the night away when The Blackpool Tower Ballroom becomes centre stage for a spectacular Dance for Victory.
The free Music for Heroes concert has become one of the many highlights of the celebrations. The Winter Gardens will host a night of music, comedy and live performance.
The famous Mighty Wurlitzer will be played at an Armed Forces themed afternoon tea dance in the magnificent surroundings of Blackpool’s famous Tower Ballroom. Members of the Armed Forces, veterans, families, friends and supporters are invited to enjoy a four course meal whilst being treated to the music of the Stowe Brass band at the Grand Gala Dinner.
Enjoy a full day of entertainment on Blackpool Promenade to celebrate Armed Forces Day. A number of vintage and modern day military vehicles will form a static display along the Promenade, including everyone’s favourite the famous replica Spitfire from the Lytham St Annes Spitfire Ground Display Team. Come and see what other stands and displays are on offer including Military associations, local military cadet units, decommissioned Military items for all to view, and fun and games for all the family!
