A WW2 Spitfire will be the highlight of Armed Forces Day in Banbury.  The iconic fighter plane will perform a flypast just before midday as part of the town’s tribute to service men and women past, present and future.
The event will include military demonstrations, static displays, and military vehicles.
A parade through town will see hundreds of current service personnel, cadets, and veterans line up with civic leaders and others at 10.45am in the Market Place for a procession led by a marching band.  The parade will start at 11am and march up Parson’s Street, along Horsefair and down High Street for a salute.
A drumhead service in the Market Place will take place after the procession.
