Perry Barr Celebrates Armed Forces Day with Free Admission for Service Members

Perry Barr Greyhound Stadium is set to honour Armed Forces Day in a special way this month, offering free admission to veterans and current service members of His Majesty’s Naval Service, the British Army, and the RAF. This gesture of appreciation will take place on Saturday, June 29, at the Aldridge Road venue, as part of a nationwide celebration recognising the dedication and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community.

To participate, veterans and service members simply need to present a Veterans ID card or provide a copy of their military service record upon arrival. This offer grants them complimentary access to enjoy the evening's 12 live races, making for an exciting conclusion to a day of festivities.

The event at Perry Barr is designed not only to provide a thrilling night of greyhound racing but also to create a sense of community and appreciation for the men and women who have served or are currently serving in the military. It's a small token of gratitude for their immense contributions and sacrifices.

In addition to the races, the venue is planning various activities and tributes to further celebrate and honour the Armed Forces. This includes special announcements, themed decorations, and perhaps even a few surprises to make the evening more memorable for the attendees.

Perry Barr’s celebration of Armed Forces Day promises to be a significant and heartfelt event, reflecting the deep respect and admiration held for the Armed Forces community. It's a night that blends thrilling greyhound racing with heartfelt appreciation, ensuring that veterans and service members feel recognised and celebrated for their invaluable service.
