The full event programme is still to be finalised but confirmed are:

The event has the support of the Royal Brothers and the Lord Mayor, David Lewis, who said: "The City of London is immensely proud of its historic and very close association with the armed forces, which dates back to when the City was founded. I am delighted that through City Salute we have an opportunity to celebrate these links, to salute the men and women of the armed forces, and to show our gratitude for the courage and forbearance displayed by them and by their families."
