On 14th to 16th June 2019 the inaugural All Arms Festival (AAF) will be held in the Yorkshire Wartime Experience grounds on Hunsworth Lane at BD19 4DT
The AAF format is based on the Company/Squadron/Ship smoker.
You will meet up with old friends and make many new ones. Those stories that you have from your service-life did not stop when you left, you will make new ones at these fests.
Bring your camper, caravan, tent, basha or jack up together with your mates. You can either bring everything you need, or use the catering and bar provided.
There will be a bar, bands, toilets and general National Lampoon-ism.
Bring a flag showing your unit(s) and wear all your old unit’s sweatshirts with pride.
Berets and military headdress are encouraged but blazers and ties are not. They are a bitch to clean when you fall face down on the grass. Fancy dress is Friday night and sometimes Saturday as well. (Go wild with it.)
This is like the Army v Navy rugby but… for the whole weekend and much much cheaper!
We have been running these fests since 2012 so hopefully by now we may know what we are doing.
This will be the weekend that you will look forward to for the entire year because it will allow you to be that 21 year old serviceman again in a field with like-minded veterans.
Early bird until end Feb – £40
Ticket in Advance – £45
Ticket on the gate – £55
No dogs or civilians allowed due to their mess getting into your tent on your footwear.
Gates open 1200hrs Fri and close on Sunday when you all leave. (Get a Halfords Alcohol test kit for Sunday)
Start packing your G1098, put your leave request into your better half now (unless they served in which case bring them) and book early.
THE WEEKEND YOU NEVER KNEW YOU NEEDED ffffffffffff
