Dennis the Menace has visited Stirling’s new outdoor events arena ahead of this year’s Armed Forces Day National Event.

The free, family-friendly event takes place on Saturday 28th June and will also feature an appearance by Dennis the Menace.

Armed Forces Day National Event aims to celebrate and express appreciation for the outstanding contribution of the armed forces, andto recognise the serving personnel, reservists, cadets and veterans from all three services and their families.

“We heard that Stirling’s Provost and Depute Council Leader were fans of The Beano and that they’re throwing a big family-friendly event at the end of the month,” explained DC Thomson Head of Brand Tim Collins. “I do hope they’re thrilled to have met their idol.”

Stirling’s Armed Forces Day National Event includes current and vintage aircraft displays, with an appearance by the Red Arrows. There’s also a parade, drumhead service and live music.

Stirling’s Provost Mike Robbins said: “Stirling’s Armed Forces Day National Event is going to be a fantastic free, family-friendly event and we’re delighted that Dennis can come along. We hope that menaces of all ages from across the country can also come and join us for the celebrations.”

Stirling’s Armed Forces Day National Event is part of Stirling’s Big Weekend, which also includes Bannockburn Live, Pipefest, Stirling Castle and Wallace Monument tours, street performances, live music, parades and late-night shopping.
