Since 2009, Armed Forces Day has been marked annually with events large and small throughout the UK.
In support of this event, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) is providing funding to help organisations and individuals in the UK host an Armed Forces Day event this summer.
Last year, events took place in all parts of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. They included Armed Forces Day tea parties, parades, big band concerts, civil war military re-enactments and live and static demonstrations.
Local councils, organisations, schools, ex-service organisations and individuals in the UK are eligible to apply for funding of a maximum £10,000 (providing the MoD accounts for no more that 50% of the project costs).
The event should be held on or in the weeks around National Armed Forces Day which will be celebrated on Saturday 25 June 2016 when a major national event will be held in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire and local events will be held across the UK.
The deadline for applications is 25 March 2016.
