Individuals and local groups that would like to hold an event to celebrate Armed Forces Day can apply for funding from the Ministry of Defence.
The event can be anywhere in the UK and the funding can be used for a picnic in the park; themed BBQ; knees up in your living room; street party or fête; etc. Applicants should try to hold their event on or in the weeks around Saturday 24 June 2017.
The amount of funding the MoD will provide must cover 50% or less of the total costs of running the event and the deadline for submitting applications is the 30th April 2017. Event organisers should in the first instance register their event on the Armed Forces Day website https://www.armedforcesday.org.uk/get-involved/organise-your-own-event/
