About Victoria Day 2017

One of the biggest highlights of the year, Victoria Day celebrates Aldershot's close ties with Queen Victoria and attracts thousands of local people to the town centre.

This year, we worked once more with the residents of the Aldershot Community Together group to organise the day, which proved to be full of fun and entertainment and a great day for the town.

The sun shone down as visitors enjoyed a host of activities throughout the town, including in Union Street, Wellington Street and Princes Gardens.

The Victoria Day parade

As always, the highlight of the day was the parade, featuring marching bands, schools, community groups, Normandy veterans, Nepali dancers, classic cars and Queen Victoria - Aldershot's Betty Bryce - in a horse-drawn carriage.

Starting at 11am from outside the Princes Hall, the parade toured the town centre on a route along Grosvenor Road, Victoria Road, Station Road and High Street, returning back to Princes Way.

Attractions

Among the day's many attractions were:

  • Live music and dance at the Princes Gardens bandstand all day
  • Community stalls in Union Street and Wellington Street and brass bands performing all day
  • Children's fun fair rides
  • Small children's donutting slope from Alpine Snowsports in Aldershot
  • Little Dallas Donkeys
  • Classic car show
  • Little Magic Ponies and sand art activities for children
