Event organisers in Neath Port Talbot are being invited to affiliate their own events with the 2023 Mayor of Neath Port Talbot’s Armed Forces Festival, which takes place in October and November.
This year’s festival will include a concert at the Princess Royal Theatre on Friday 27th October and an information event in the Aberafan Shopping Centre with a flag raising ceremony on Saturday 28th October
The Mayor of Neath Port Talbot, Councillor Chris Williams said:
“We are issuing a call to event organisers across Neath Port Talbot to join forces with the council. If their events become part of the festival programme, they could benefit from free promotion, including on the council’s social media accounts, website, notice boards and on TV screens in public areas.”
The annual 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.
The festival is particularly interested in affiliating with armed forces themed, historical or other relevant events taking place at the end of October or beginning of November.
