High Wycombe town centre will be raising a salute to our military heroes on Saturday 25th June 2022.
To mark the annual Armed Forces Day on Saturday 25th June 2022 High Wycombe town centre will be hosting a celebration event on the High Street between 11.00am and 4.00pm.
Throughout the day there will be entertainment, including a live duo of singing Military Sweethearts (The Polka Dots), a giant Colour-In Military Heroes Wall and a Vintage Pop Up Tearoom styled by the town’s very own ‘Air Raid Café and Tearooms’ with amazing war-time props and refreshments.
The Royal British Legion will be fundraising for the military charity, plus there will be demonstrations and exhibits from the local Army and Sea cadet groups, including the Royal British Legion Riders with their impressive motorbikes and leathers, plus a Military Vehicle Display arranged by local enthusiast groups.
Hosted alongside Saturday’s busy market, the one-day celebration event which runs from 11.00am to 4.00pm will be packed with family-friendly activity, live musical performances, stilt-walking, face painting, a gourmet food market and more.
The event is being organised by HWBIDCo, chief cheerleaders for High Wycombe town centre. Melanie Williams, Chief Executive of HWBIDCo, said: ‘It’s an honour to celebrate all those who have served our country in this way, encouraging a sense of pride in the younger generations, and we’re delighted that so many local military organisations will be joining us for the event. The ‘Air Raid Café’ in The Chilterns Centre is an amazing destination café too, and we’re excited to bring this out into the open for all the enjoy.
It’s just the start of a Summer of fun, with regular events taking place throughout the coming months and it’s a great feeling to be able to welcome increasingly more visitors to the town after the last 12 months.‘
