HMS Collingwood Open Day

HMS Collingwood Open Day is back again this year and will take place on Saturday 6th July.

We are delighted to announce that Early Bird tickets are now on sale for HMS Collingwood Open Day featuring the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) Field Gun Competition on Saturday 6 July 2024.

Visit now to get the Early Bird offers, available for a limited time only.

This unique family event, which showcases the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) Field Gun Competition, will also offer many fun-filled family attractions, with entertainment and displays designed to capture the imagination of everyone, whilst giving an insight into HMS Collingwood, Defence Training, the Royal Navy and other Armed and Public Forces.


There will be Interactive Zones for hands-on activities and parts of the establishment will be open to visitors, allowing them to see the Royal Navy’s training equipment and experience some training first hand, including navigating a ship into harbour in our Warship Bridge Simulator.


The 2024 RNRMC Field Gun Competition will yet again see a range of crews from across the UK and beyond, competing for the coveted Brickwoods Tropy, with last year’s winners, HMS Seahawk, hoping to win again!


This year there we will see a special visit from the Raiders Parachute Display Team, a Military village, together with many fairground rides including the dodgems! Our children’s area will see a petting zoo, inflatables attractions, pirate ship and so much more, all FREE OF CHARGE!!


This year we will also be supporting local businesses, encouraging them to showcase their produce at our event - #supportlocal!


Gates open at 0930 and a free bus service will run throughout the day from Fareham and Gosport and back. You can view the bus timetable here. Once the entrance fee is paid all entertainment and attractions are then free of charge, including the fairground rides.
