Step back in time and join the fun of a Victorian Fair to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Fort Nelson. Traditional rides of a steam carousel, swing boats, a Ferris wheel and a pepper-pot helter-skelter will be in full swing on Saturday September 25 and Sunday September 26.
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.
Our Junior Assault Course which entertained hundreds of children during the summer holiday will be reopened for the special event.
Tickets cost £7.50 to include unlimited rides, the assault course as well as parking and entry to the museum. Book at http://royalarmouries.org/venue/fort-nelson/
The event is free for under 3s and children under 1.2m high will need to be accompanied on the rides.
