This year’s national event will be taking place in Salisbury. Salisbury was a natural choice to host Armed Forces Day in 2019.


The City has an historic link with our Armed Forces and our troops demonstrated once again their bravery, dedication and skill during the central role they played following the reckless nerve agent attack here this year.


Our extraordinary service men and women continue to help Salisbury and the people of this beautiful cathedral City through the clear up and investigation, and it’s extremely fitting that next year the city and the entire nation will be able to thank them here for their commitment and unwavering service to protecting our nation from the deadliest of threats.
