Keighley’s Armed Forces Day is on Sunday 18th June 2017 at Marley Fields, Keighley.
To get there you can come by car by driving to Marley Stadium and following the signs for ‘Armed Forces Day’, which is on the top field and will be well signposted so you can find it easily. Car parking is available at the stadium end and you can walk from there, or you could follow the signs and park your vehicle in our car park on the field and save your legs, and we will have a disabled parking section available. We do ask for a small voluntary donation though, which will help us to cover our costs.

Or you could use our dedicated bus service, the times are as follows:
