The Suffolk Coast

Suffolk Armed Forces Weekend

Suffolk Armed Forces Weekend is a weekend of action packed entertainment.

2017 marks the 350th anniversary of the Dutch attack on Landguard Fort in Felixstowe and to mark the occasion, and to recognise the huge contribution made by our servicemen and women from the past until the present day, Felixstowe has been chosen as the venue for Suffolk Armed Forces Day.

This will be a high profile, one off free event for all age groups with a unique package of entertainment including music from choirs and military bands to an evening of pop and rock, military displays, food stalls, kids activities and fireworks, and some thrilling battle re-enactments between the Dutch and English with cannon, muskets and swords, and lots more. All this by Felixstowe’s fantastic seaside with all that has to offer as well.

The event is being organised in partnership by organisations including the Suffolk Armed Forces Covenant Group, the Landguard Fort Trust, Royal Marines Association and Royal British Legion, with assistance from local authorities and military units.
