October - November 2023
The festival is designed to pay tribute to the Armed Forces and their families in Neath Port Talbot, both the fallen and veterans from the two World Wars and other global conflicts. It also honours those currently serving and their families for the ongoing contribution they make at home and abroad.
Join us to celebrate and commemorate the past and present day contribution of the Armed Forces to our Communities.
