As well as learning about the different branches and specialisms of the Naval Reserve, you’ll get the chance to:

  • A presentation on the Royal Naval Reserve including a tour of the facilities

The unit bar will be open for a short period after the event. This will be a great opportunity to mingle with both regular and reserve members of the Royal Navy and get the inside story on service life.

You will need to bring along photographic identification and report to the main gate no later than 7pm in order gain access to the event. Under-18s will need to be accompanied by an adult.

As some activities are outdoors, we’d recommend bringing warm clothing, a waterproof jacket and flat, comfortable shoes.

About the Royal Naval Reserve

The Royal Naval Reserve is the volunteer force of the Royal Navy. With a basic commitment of 24 days a year, you’ll take part in training exercises, defence drills and adventure activities, often overseas. You could even be mobilised for an operational tour of duty.

You'll develop skills that will benefit your career; experience adventures you couldn't have anywhere else; and serve your country and community. All while maintaining your day job.
