Countdown to Victoria Day

Victoria Day returns to Aldershot town centre on Saturday 8th June.


This is a highlight of the town’s calendar, bringing the community together for a day of live music, entertainment and family fun from 10am to 4pm.


The event celebrates Aldershot’s links to Queen Victoria, as well as the town’s proud history as the home of the British army.


The highlight of the day is the grand parade through the town centre which sets off at 11am from the Princes Hall. This year’s parade will have a seaside theme with participants encouraged to dress up with nautical stripes, straw boaters and, beach balls.


There will be three marching bands to keep the pace, plus community groups, school children, vintage vehicles, businesses and residents making their way through the town centre.


There will a full day of live music, stalls and entertainment including donkey rides, face painting, craft activities and seaside fun fair attractions such as a chair-o-planes, a high striker and a seaside photo board.


It’s not too late to take part — for more details go to www.rushmoor.gov.uk/victoriaday.
