The date for this year’s Armed Forces Day has been revealed, and thousands of people are expected to attend once again.
This year’s event will be extra special too as it will mark 100 years of the Royal Air Force .
As such, Plymouth City Council will be working closely with the RAF for the RAF celebrations and commemorations.
The day, as always, will be fantastic opportunity for everyone to show their support for the Armed Forces community, ranging from those currently serving to veterans, reservists, cadets and their families .
When is it?
Saturday, June 30, 2018.
Where is it?
The event will take place on the Plymouth Hoe .
Between 40 – 50,000 people are expected to attend, making it one the biggest events in the city.
Where should I park and which roads are closed?
There’s likely to be heavy traffic across the city as the crowds arrive to see the stunning displays – so you might want to leave a little extra time to make sure you don’t miss out.
Last year, Hoe Road, from the Mound at the Citadel to the junction to Madeira Road, will be closed between 7am and 1pm.
Citadel Road, from the Lockyer Street junction to the junction with Sussex Street, will be closed between 5.30pm to 7pm.
There were also no parking zones on Osbourne Place and Cliff Road.
All of these are subject to change.
For most, it will probably be easier to park within the city centre and walk to The Hoe, which takes about 15 minutes.
For anyone with mobility issues, the Theatre Royal Car Park is one of the closest car parks.
