Every year we host events at our pubs across the UK to celebrate Armed Forces Day and this year we want to make it bigger and better than ever. What have you got planned for 24 June?

One day or one week – every bit helps so we are asking everyone to take part in some way.

In recent months we have seen the work of our Armed Forces on our own city streets, keeping us safe while also putting their own lives at risk.

The celebration of their work starts with Armed Forces Week on 19 June and ends with Armed Forces Day on 24 June.

How can we salute our service men and women together?

  • Put on the kettle and make a good brew! The Armed Forces charity SSAFA, is running the Big Brew Up so get the teabags out and raise some cash. Don’t forget the cake on the side.

  • Decorate your pub in Armed Forces colours and celebrate all that they do with a family fun day.

  • 21 June – Reserves Day – Are you a Reservist? Wear your uniform to work and talk about the role you play. There’s an online Reserves Day toolkit with resources to help here.

  • Find other ideas and inspiration about events that can be organised for Armed Forces Day here.
