Nothe Fort Takeover



We're joining with The Nothe Fort Garrison from Weymouth as they bring the Old Battery to life and give a real taste of what it may have looked, smelled, and sounded like.

From raising the flag first thing in the morning, to drills on the parade ground and the boom of rifle and cannon firing throughout the day, the Garrison will fill the battery with life, just as it once was.

Children can join in with the drills and the Garrison will be on hand for photo opportunities, in particular on the entry gate.
