Penistone Armed Forces Day, South Yorks., Saturday June 24th

Recommended Posts

Penistone Armed Forces Day 24th June 2017 11am - 5pm.

An open Invitation to all military vehicle owners to attend the above event, Sat 24th June. It is the main Armed Forces Day arena event for South Yorkshire, being supported by both Sheffield City Council and Barnsley MBC.


Location - Penistone Showground, a rural Pennine market town setting, amidst some fantastic countryside. Any period of military vehicle is welcome and there is plenty of space available to accommodate even the largest. Appropriate period uniform is welcome – except NO Axis SS.

Vehicle owners who are part of re-enactment groups who would like their group there to provide a fuller display please contact the organisers to discuss things. All periods are welcome, but please be correctly equipped and attired, and respectful in your representation. This is Armed Forces Day- not a ‘blat fest’. :-) Having said that, it is going to be a fun family day in order to raise funds for charity.

Also in attendance, weather and everything else permitting, will be Parachutists, Marching Bands, Military Music, Royal Navy Field Gun Competition, Junior Assault Course, Vehicle Displays, Re-enactments, Demonstrations and a Police Dog Handling display.

The Charity being supported in 2017 will be Combat Stress (Ex-Services Mental Welfare Society).

Any vehicle owner attending MUST contact the event organiser at least two weeks before the event - there is no booking form. You need to be 'on the list' to gain entry. The usual show rule applies regarding having valid Third Party Insurance Cover. Please be prepared to have to show it. All vehicles to be on site, movement finished, by 10am, thanks.

Hoping to attend with about 8 vehicles more if i can get a few more folk interested. We have been working with the armed forces day team and they were up with us the other day to do some promotional photos.

Are you based around Penistone No signals? we are based up at Millhouse green you should call in for a brew if your passing.
