Victoria Day 2021

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have cancelled this year's Victoria Day, but hope to return in 2021.

With the new date just over seven weeks away, an easing of the restrictions around mass gatherings and social distancing that would enable the event to go ahead in its usual format appears extremely unlikely.

We are obviously very disappointed and we hope that the event will be able to return in 2021.

About Victoria Day

Victoria Day is the biggest highlight in Aldershot's vibrant events calendar, The event celebrates Aldershot's close ties with Queen Victoria and attracts thousands of visitors to the town centre. This year, the event was due to include the annual Get Involved Fair, run in partnership with Rushmoor Voluntary Services.

The theme was due to be 'Blossoms and Bees' a celebration of the English country garden.

Every year, we work with the residents of the Aldershot Community Together group to organise the day, which promises a day full of fun and entertainment for the town.

What's on

The highlight of the day is the grand parade, which in 2019 attracted more than 800 people including marching bands, schools, community groups, Normandy veterans, Nepali dancers, classic cars and Queen Victoria - Aldershot's Betty Bryce.

In previous years, the town centre has been transformed, with performances from local musicians and dancers in the bandstand, free children's crafts, face painting and many more action-packed activities.

Get involved

We encourage all community groups, schools, businesses, residents to take part, with opportunities to book a stall, join the parade, perform on the day - or something else.
