Individuals and local groups that would like to hold an event to celebrate Armed Forces Day – Saturday 30th June 2018 – can apply for funding from the Ministry of Defence.
The event can be anywhere in the UK and the funding can be used for celebrations such as (but not limited to):
- A picnic in the park
- Themed BBQ
- Knees up in your living room
- Street party or fête
Applicants should try to hold their event on or in the weeks around Armed Forces Day.
The amount of funding the MoD will provide must cover 50% or less of the total costs of running the event.
Event organisers should in the first instance register their event on the Armed Forces Day website and apply before Monday 30 April 2018.
