Armed Forces Day at Himley Hall is a FREE family event including vintage fairground rides, Punch and Judy shows and craft, food and vintage stalls. There will also be paint balling provided by Dudley Army Cadet Force and an archery range, provided by Kingswinford Air Cadet squadron.

 

We are delighted to announce that the Wings Parachute Display Team will once again be wowing the crowds as they jump into the park from 6,000ft.

You will be able to step back in time with Pete’s War Time Show and sing-a-long to wartime classics with Victory Gal Melissa. 

 

Pete’s War Time show will be entertaining the crowds and the troops with tales and music from 1940s while other activities in the park will include vintage fairground rides and free Punch & Judy shows, dance sessions and a vintage military vehicle display. There will also be a paintball gallery, archery and rifle range and circus skills to have a go at.

Highlights of the day will include an opportunity to meet regular and reserve military units and watch as past and present armed forces personnel are presented with their veterans’ badges and service medals. In the afternoon, marching bands, standard-bearers and members of the Armed Forces will join together for the spectacular Beating Retreat, a military tradition dating back centuries.
