The Heroes' Shrine

The Heroes' Shrine memorial is Aldershot's national memorial to those who lost their lives in World War Two and was unveiled by the Duke of Gloucester in 1950.

It features a Portland stone statue of Christ stilling the storm and in front of it is a sunken walled rock garden, which contains stones from bombed buildings during the war, from 18 cities and 34 boroughs, including Coventry Cathedral and the Tower of London.

The Portland stone statue is carved from a block rejected by Sir Christopher Wren in the building of St Paul's Cathedral.  The statue was carved by Josephina de Vasconcellos and designed by borough surveyor FW Taylor.

Peace garden

Opened in 2018 to commemorate the centenary of Armistice, our peace garden offers a place to sit and reflect. 

The Manor House

Built in 1670, the Manor House is a Grade II listed building.  The impressive red-bricked three-storey house was home to the Tichborne family, owners of the Manor of Aldershot  for 200 years.

Events in the park

During the year the park hosts funfairs, local community and charitable events.

Fireworks display

The cost of living is affecting everyone at the moment, including the council, and we must make sure we spend council tax payers' money responsibly.

We last held the Rushmoor Fireworks Spectacular in 2019, having stopped it because of the pandemic, and this has given us the opportunity to think about how we use our limited resources best.

During that time, we have refocused our events programme on our town centres, organising events and activities that will help boost the towns' footfall and trade to our shops and businesses throughout the year, and that celebrate Rushmoor's diverse communities.

Our busy events programme includes Victoria Day, Armed Forces Day, Playfest!, the Aldershot Christmas Cracker,  the Farnborough Frost Fair, events at Halloween, and our increasingly popular town centre craft fayres, markets and car boot sales.

There are now a number of organised fireworks displays locally, as well as displays in the wider area.

We would be happy to work with a third party to run an event in the future, but in the current financial climate, we are not able to support a fireworks event directly.
