Armed Forces Day Proms in the Park

Rushcliffe Borough Council marks Armed Forces Day, a nationwide celebration to honour the work of the British armed forces, past and present with a free open-air musical event

In 2018 our Armed Forces Day celebration will take place on Saturday 30 June 12pm-9pm in Bridgford Park, West Bridgford. There'll be performances throughout the day from local choirs, singers and bands including leading up to our 'last night of the proms' concert at 7pm with Nottingham Concert Band. Proms is not just about the music though as we’ll also have lots of great displays from local community groups, including from this year's official Proms charity the Royal British Legion.

‌Around the park there will also be lots of family friendly attractions including a fairground and garden games. A licensed bar and various food outlets will on site or you are welcome to bring your own picnic. Visit our facebook event page  for event news, photos and programme information.

Parking for Proms in the Park is available on Bridge Field, Bridgford Road. For information about buses please contact your local operator, visit or call 0871 200 22 33.
