Suffolk Armed Forces Weekend (the battle of landguard fort)

This year there are two big reasons for Felixstowe to celebrate our Armed Forces.

2017 marks the 350th anniversary of the Dutch attack on Landguard Fort in Felixstowe and to mark the occasion,

and to recognise the huge contribution made by our servicemen and women from the past until the present day, Felixstowe has been chosen as the venue for Suffolk Armed Forces Day.

A weekend of action-packed entertainment is planned for Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 June.

This free event for all ages will include live music from choirs and military bands to an evening of pop and rock, military displays, food stalls, children’s activities and fireworks, alongside some thrilling battle re-enactments between the Dutch and English with cannon, muskets and swords, and lots more. All this by Felixstowe’s fantastic seaside with all that has to offer as well.
