Nothe Fort Artillery Weekend

A colourful event involving re-enactors from our own Nothe Fort Artillery

It may not be 1872, with Queen Victoria on the throne of England, however, throughout the year, when the Nothe Fort Artillery are on parade, it is quite easy to imagine you have travelled back almost one and a half centuries in time.

A colourful event involving re-enactors from our Nothe Fort Artillery. A great family Day Out with interactive living history and a chance to learn about the artillery who were stationed here during the Victorian period.

The two day period will be packed full of events, many interactive, giving visitors of all ages plenty of entertainment throughout the weekend. If you like loud bangs and gun fire, this event is for you. Please be aware pets make take a different view.
