About this event

Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 September 2021

This event is at Fort Nelson near Portsmouth

Roll up, roll up! Join us for all the fun of the fair to mark the 150th anniversary of the opening of Fort Nelson in September 1871.

The Parade Ground will be full of traditional rides and entertainments for all the family.

Including:

  • A steam carousel
  • Swing boats
  • A Ferris wheel
  • A traditional pepper-pot helter-skelter
  • Fairground stalls - coconut shy, tin-can alley, test your strength machine and lots more

To really bring history to life there will be a variety of Victorian characters roaming the fair, interacting with visitors and delivering set-piece performances throughout the day.

Tickets

Tickets cost £7.50 and include entrance to the museum, all rides and fairground stalls, live performances and the junior assault course. Parking is free.

Free for under 3s and no need to book tickets for under 3s.

Carer tickets - 1 free ticket per visitor with disabilities. Visitor with disabilities is required to purchase a ticket.

Once you are in the museum you can stay as long as you wish. Fort Nelson will close at 5pm.

Children under 1.2m high will need to be accompanied on the rides so the adults have a good excuse to go have a go too.

Museum-only visitors

The museum’s galleries and tunnel will be open on 25 & 26 September, however, there will be no access to the outdoor areas including the Artillery Hall, the Parade and ramparts.

Visits cannot be pre-booked, and admission will be subject to capacity at the time of arrival. You may need to wait to be admitted.
