Victoria Day programme

About Victoria Day 2018

Come and join the Aldershot community for one of the biggest highlights of the year, Victoria Day on Saturday 9 June from 10am to 5pm.

The event celebrates Aldershot's close ties with Queen Victoria and attracts thousands of local people to the town centre.

This year, we are once again working with the residents of the Aldershot Community Together group to organise the day, which promises to be full of fun and entertainment and a great day for the town.

Free parking will be available in all Rushmoor Borough Council car parks (excluding the Co-op). The weekly car boot sale on the ground floor of the High Street multi-storey car park will go ahead as usual.

Parade

The highlight of the day is the parade, which last year attracted more than 800 people including marching bands, schools, community groups, Normandy veterans, Nepali dancers, classic cars and Queen Victoria - Aldershot's Betty Bryce.

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

Our sponsors

This year's event is being sponsored by Grainger Plc, Specsavers, South East Water and Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
