Weymouth will welcome veterans, residents and visitors to a week of military and veterans commemorations and celebrations.
Festival Highlight will include the Service of Remembrance, a Seafront Parade with over 1,000 veterans, five marching bands, historic military vehicle static display, Tea Dance and more.
