Tens of thousands of visitors will be flocking to the Yorkshire Coast on Saturday to pay tribute to the armed forces.

Military families and veterans will be given the VIP treatment as part of the celebrations being hosted in Scarborough.

The resort’s sixth Armed Forces Day includes a fly past by the oldest Vulcan and a Spitfire, Lancaster, and Hurricane from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

An action packed programme runs from 11.30am until 5pm starting with a Freedom Parade through the town centre and down to South Bay by the 1st Battalion (1 YORKS) of The Yorkshire Regiment.

There will be a Beach Boot Camp, Sea and Air Cadets demonstrations, military bands, displays by a Sea King RNLI helicopter and RAF Tucano, service of thanks giving, and parade of veterans.

Other highlights on the ground include: Red Arrows and Help for Heroes flight simulators, equipment displays, vintage military vehicles, infantry bridge, paintball range, WW1 exhibitions and much more.

Military families are welcome to visit the Heroes Welcome tent opposite the RNLI lifeboat station to claim a free hospitality pack (armed Forces identification will be required).
