As in previous years it will be held in East Court. It will commence with a short service of thanksgiving at the small memorial adjacent to the Meridian Hall, where the following Celebration will be held. The Service will begin at 1115, and the event will finish at 1530. This will be the fifth such event and its principal aim is to focus attention on living veterans, current armed forces and military cadet organisations. Over the last five years, the content of the Celebration has grown each year. Last year, a notable improvement on the previous years was the contribution from local ATC, Army and Navy cadet forces who turned out in numbers and the ATC and Army cadets put on an impressive set of drill and marching displays.
