Armed Forces Day

Get in touch with us

African Thunder Events was recently contracted by Tsalena Media to provide Event Infrastructure for the annual Armed Forces Day, held at the Air Force Base in Bloemspruit, just outside the city centre of Bloemfontein.

The requirements included marquee infrastructure for VIP’s and distinguished members of the SANDF; a viewing marquee for the annual Armed Forces Parade; as well as a large-scale production inside one of the South African Air Force’s hangars for the annual gala luncheon for 1000 past and present members of the SANDF and their families.

Other services offered by African Thunder Events, which were provided and facilitated for the event included:

  • Marquee Infrastructure
  • Carpeting
  • Draping
  • Air Conditioning
  • Sound & Lighting
  • Furniture (Tables, Chairs, VIP Lounges, Tablecloths, Chair Covers, Centerpieces)
  • Plants (Trees & Flower Arrangements)


Despite a torrential downpour which struck the Bloemfontein area in the early afternoon, the event went off without any glitches and we trust their 1000 guests who came out to celebrate our servicemen and women from the Army, Navy and Air Force had an enjoyable day!

We look forward to seeing you all and to being of service again in 2015!
