What's it about?

The popular Veterans Weekend will take place in Hull’s East Park on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July.

Now in its thirteenth year, the free family weekend will be a fantastic experience for people of all ages, recognising and celebrating the role of our armed forces both past and present.

People will have the chance to meet veterans and experience what it was like in the 1940’s as well as meet current servicemen and women from the armed forces.

Entertainment will be underway from 10am on both days. The Great War Trent Experience, Replica Flying Flea plane, WWII Genuine Anderson Shelter will all be on display. There will also be a performance from the Silver Stars again (weather permitting) who will parachute in to the park at 1.15pm on the Saturday.

A number of regiments will be attending and there will be an array of military vehicles and memorabilia; British, German and American army camps, living history displays and a number WWII battle re-enactments and parades. The main stage will showcase a range of 1940’s music, fashion and dance including the Frank Cleveland Band, Jump Jive singers and Larks Swing Duo and Colin Bourdiec – George Formby Tribute Artist.

As always there will be attractions for all the family including donkey rides, traditional games, craft workshops and living history displays positioned within the battlefield area throughout the weekend.

Admission to the event on both days is free. This year there is no parking on site at the event. Members of the public who have blue badges will be able to park in East Park but must show their badges to gain access.

The weekend’s activities are organised by Hull City Council.
