Armed Forces Day 2018

A parade honouring both serving and ex-servicemen will travel throughout the town centre starting from Sir Nigel Gresley square at 11am prompt, passing through town to the Grade 1 listed Mansion House and ending at Doncaster Market Square.

The Market Square will be transformed for the day evoking memories of the war years with a huge FREE Street Party that will feature refreshments and entertainment for the public. The live stage will start immediately after the parade and go on till 4pm. Visitors are encouraged to dress in the style of the period and engage with the street party activities.
Throughout the parade route, relevant organisations will be represented and the streets will be decorated to commemorate not only the 100 years since the end of the First World War but also the formation of the RAF.
There will also be stalls, exhibits and plenty to see and do in and around the Market Place. The day will be family friendly and totally free to attend with food and drink available for purchase from a number of stall holders. A swing band, vocalists and entertainers will offer plenty of fun for the whole family and the event will come to a climax at 3pm with the Doncaster Youth Swing Orchestra who will play the last hour of this great day!
