Armed Forces Day returns for its 16th year on 29 June and with it, your chance to show your appreciation for the serving personnel, reservists and veterans who are responsible for keeping us safe.

Local parks, community halls, high streets and back gardens will come to life in the last week of June with celebrations of the UK military community – and there’s still time to apply for a grant.

To supercharge your event, register your plans on the Armed Forces Day website and apply for a grant of up to £10,000 before 1 April.
