Victoria Day

Victoria Day will be back on Saturday 8 June 2019.

About Victoria Day

Victoria Day is one of the biggest events in Aldershot's calendar. Victoria Day celebrates Aldershot's close ties with Queen Victoria and attracts thousands of local people to the town centre. 

The event is made possible thanks to the support of an enthusiastic group of volunteers and residents who are part of the Aldershot Community Together group.

We have lots happening all around the town centre with brass bands performing and stalls to browse. Many of the town's independent shops also support the day creating eye-catching window displays.

We have lots of fun and free activities in Princes Gardens, with performances and live music in the community bandstand, children's activities, craft activities, stalls, food, refreshments and more, plus a classic car show in the Princes Gardens car park.

Parade

Community groups, schools and businesses take part in our grand parade through the town centre at 11am and crowds line the streets.

The parade is led by the town's very own Queen Victoria, Betty Bryce.
