Army taking to the stage at Theatre Severn
Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury is hosting an unusual ‘performance’ when it plays host to a Meet the Army event next week.
The event, which will be in the Walker Theatre of the Shropshire Council-run venue, will welcome local communities and businesses to come and meet their local Army.
People will enjoy a presentation delivered by the Army engagement team, as well as having the opportunity to meet the local units who will be operating ‘market stalls’ that explain what the Army in does in Shropshire and why.
Visitors will have the chance to chat to soldiers, meet locally-based reservists, and enjoy some hospitality with a light buffet.
Ian Nellins, Shropshire Council’s deputy Leader and Armed Forces champion, said:-
“As an Armed Forces Covenant gold-standard employer, Shropshire Council is delighted to host the Meet the Army event team at Theatre Severn.
“Shropshire has a large Armed Forces community, including serving members (regulars and reserves), veterans and their families, and events like this help people understand more about the services and what they bring to our local communities as well as their roles globally.
“I am sure there will be a good turnout and people will leave well informed and with a good appreciation of our Armed Forces.”
Meet the Army is at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury from 6.30pm on Wednesday 3 May 2023. The event is free to attend but registration is required: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/meet-your-army-the-army-enagement-group-tickets-569415987547
