There will also be the opportunity to help create a human poppy in the main arena.

Wiltshire Council leader Jane Scott said: "We’re counting down to Salisbury playing host to one of the most important dates in the military calendar.

"Tickets for this three-day spectacular are now online, and we are expecting there to be great interest, so my advice is to book your tickets early. I’d love to see as many of you as possible join us for what promises to be a wonderful event here in Wiltshire.

"We're a proud military county and we're looking forward to recognising and celebrating our Armed Forces and the vital role they play. We'll also be honouring our veterans and welcoming HRH The Princes Royal to Salisbury. This event will be a unique and special occasion so please do come along and join us."
