Step back in time and join the fun of a Victorian Fair to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Fort Nelson.
Traditional rides, including a steam carousel, swing boats, a Ferris wheel and a pepper-pot helter-skelter will be in full swing on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September. Plus, a coconut shy, tin-can alley and a traditional test-your-strength machine will be amongst fairground stalls at the event.
Victorian costumed characters will be roaming the fair talking to visitors with performances at set times throughout the day - 150 years after soldiers first arrived at Fort Nelson in September 1871.
The Junior Assault Course, which entertained hundreds of children during the summer holiday, will be reopened for the special event.
Tickets cost £7.50 and include unlimited rides, as well as the assault course, parking and entry to the museum. Bookings must be made in advance as capacity is limited. Arrival times on tickets is between 10am and 2pm, but visitors can stay as long as they wish once on site. Fort Nelson will close at 5pm.
The event is free for under 3s. Children under 1.2m high will need to be accompanied on the rides.
Refreshments will be available from the fort's café and outdoor kiosk. Members will receive a 20 per cent discount on tickets. Find out more about membership.
The Parade Ground will be closed to non-ticket holders for the weekend of the event.
Entry and tours are free, but tours need to be booked in advance. Parking is £3 per vehicle.
