With less than five months to go until Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29 June, now is the time to apply for funding if you would like to host your own event to support the UK Armed Forces community.

Hundreds of events took place across the UK last year from street parties, to village fêtes and themed picnics to community BBQs. If you would like to host an event but are in need of some inspiration, take a look at some ideas here.

You can apply for up to £10,000 in funding to help with organisational expenses so to find out if your event is eligible for funding, please register before the deadline on 1 March.
