HMS Collingwood Open Day

On Saturday 2nd July 2022 a perennial favourite returns at HMS Collingwood, Fareham, Hampshire. The establishment will re-open its gates for the annual Open Day, celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War.

The event will feature the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) Field Gun Competition. The Field Gun Competition will have crews competing from all of the Armed Services across the UK, and as far afield as Gibraltar and Cyprus, competing for the coveted Brickwood Trophy.  The competition is fast and furious and requires teams of 18 to run, dismantle, reassemble and fire the gun in the shortest possible time.  Strength, stamina, and team work are essential in this challenge. 

The Open Day will offer a great insight to HMS Collingwood, the Royal Navy, and tri-Service representatives from the South Coast and further afield.  There will be attractions including free fairground rides, live music and entertainment, and displays designed to capture the imagination of everyone.

A frequent bus service will run from Fareham and Gosport, with the timetable published closer to the time.

Further information and updates as more is confirmed will be available in the local press and via social media (search for HMS Collingwood on Twitter and Facebook).

Attractions include: 

  • Fun fair (13 piece)
  • Spitfire fly past
  • Various displays of military weaponry
  • Flight simulator
  • Petting zoo
  • Vintage car show
  • Static aircraft display (glider)
  • Numerous stalls including food and drink
  • Annual RNRMC Field gun competition
