Armed Forces Day Event


On Saturday 24th June 2023 - Brackley Royal British Legion in Association with the Brackley Rugby Club are holding Armed Forces Day event.
Armed Forces Day was originally known as Veterans Day and commenced on 27th June 2006. The date was chosen to commemorate the investiture of the first Victoria Cross in Hyde Park in 1857. In 2009 the original name for the event changed from Veterans Day to Armed Forces Day, and in June this year we will once again celebrate the event.

Together, Brackley Royal British Legion and Rugby Club are putting together a day of activities, events, live music, food and drink and welcome all members from our community young and perhaps not so young, whether you have served, are serving or never been part of the Armed Forces, the day is for the entire Brackley and surrounding villages to come and join us and relax and enjoy ourselves.

The event will commence from 12.00 a full timetable of acts will be published and distributed once the running order has been finalised. However, we aim to start with a soft rock band from Milton Keynes and will end with Jenna Horne who will bring the curtain down later into the evening.

There will be a small entrance fee, £2.00 per person or £5.00 for a family of four (2 x Adults and 2 x Children U16).

Please bring along a Gazebo, Blankets, Picnic or just come along and enjoy the Day.

All entry fees and donations will be to support the Royal British Legion Brackley Branch and the work they do within the local community and of course to support this event in the future.

We hope that you can come along, enjoy the day and support the RBL and Rugby Club in making this an event to be proud of.
