Free family fun day to mark Armed Forces Day The City of Wolverhampton is gearing up for a special event to mark the national Armed Forces Day celebrations taking place at the end of the month. Armed Forces Day, which this year takes place on Saturday 26 June, is a chance for people to show their support for the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets. West Park will be buzzing with activities for people of all ages as it becomes the focus of family celebrations between 12noon and 4.30pm. There will be live music from Chris Westwood, The Bluebird Belles and Helix Acoustic. This free family fun event, hosted by Dicky Dodd, will also feature a fun fair, street food traders, bars, face painting, an appearance from Wolves FC mascot Wolfie, climbing wall and escape room. There will also be the chance to meet and chat with our local forces as well as information stands so there really is something for the whole family! The finale of the event will be a skydiving display from The Wings Parachute Display Team which takes place at 4.30pm (weather permitting) with four parachutists jumping from a helicopter and landing into the event arena.
