Event description

Description

The Association is holding a special Centenary Service to commemorate 100 years of the RAF. It will be held at the National Memorial Arboretum, Staffordshire, on Sunday 13 May 2018, at 11.00.

This will be an outdoor, seated event and will include our annual dedication and remembrance service. An RAF flypast has been requested and light refreshments will be available.

2,500 places are available and only guests with pre-booked tickets will be able to attend. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so we recommend that you book your tickets at the earliest opportunity. Ticket bookings are now open (see below).

You can attend the service free of charge, but, if you are able to, we would ask you to consider making a suggested donation of £10 per person towards the cost of running the event. Donations can only be accepted in advance.

The full itinerary for the day will be posted on this page in due course, but please plan to be seated by 10.30.

Why not make a day of it? The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK’s year-round centre of remembrance and is open 09.00 to 17.00. You can walk or take the land train through the maturing woodland landscape which is home to over 330 memorials. These include the Association’s beautiful RAF remembrance garden, which commemorates all members of our RAF family. Individual loved ones past and present can also be remembered within the garden through special crosses and stones. Crosses must be ordered by Friday 23 March 2018 and stones by Friday 2 February 2018, for them to be placed in the garden in time. For more information, visit our Remembrance Garden page or call Jacqui Mee on 0116 464 5035.

FAQs

What is the refund policy?

If you have donated in error, please contact 0800 018 2361.

Do I have to bring the printed ticket to the event?

Yes, they will be issued nearer to the event and this will help us with registration and security at the event. However, upon pre-booking your tickets via eventbrite you will immediately receive an e-receipt which can be used for your reference. You will also need to bring one form of photographic ID such as a passport or driving licence.

Why am I being asked for a donation?

We are suggesting a donation from £10 per person attending the Service to help towards the costs of running the event. The RAF Association relies on the support and generosity of our members, the public and supporters in generating funds to help the RAF family when they are in need. If those attending the Service contribute to the costs of running the event you are helping us ensure that no-one in the RAF family faces suffering, poverty or loneliness.

Security arrangements

Security checks will be in place and entry to the site will not be permitted without proof of identification. Please be aware that you may be required to participate in a bag search before entering the site, therefore bring as little as possible to the event.

What are parking options?

Guests arriving by car should park in the main car park at the NMA, but priority will be given to blue badge holders and those with mobility issues. If required, guests will be directed to an overflow car park a little further down the road.
