Victorian Day

A colourful festival involving re-enactors from the Nothe Fort Artillery

Victorian Day

Aug 20th 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

The Nothe Fort is preparing for their annual Victorian Military event. The Fort Artillery and the Cumberland Guard from Portsmouth, will be firing their cannons, as well as demonstrating their musket, bugles, drumming and marching skills. Queen Victoria will be visiting to inspect the Troops

Throughout the day there will be live firing displays with cannons, muskets and rifles - So plenty of loud bangs and the chance to inspect the guns at close quarters. A great day out for all the family, as well as military enthusiasts.

There will be traditional side shows including Roll a Penny, Coconut Shy and Stocks. The Victorian School Room will be open for you to try your hand at adding up “old” money and writing with an ink pen. We also welcome some specially selected craft stalls.

Don't miss this fantastic opportunity to take in the unique atmosphere of the Nothe Fort doing what it does best in authentic Victorian re-enactment.

Price of Admission Adults £9, Concessions £8, Children £3, Family Ticket £21. Under 5s Free. This is a Special Event therefore the annual membership pass is not applicable.
