HMS Sultan Summer Show

Monster Trucks ‘Big Pete’ and ‘The Grim Reaper’ will be roaring into life as part of an action packed Father’s Day weekend for all at the HMS Sultan Summer Show 2018.

The event takes place on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 June and advance tickets* are available now from:

The Show regularly attracts around 25,000 visitors from across the South for a day packed full of high quality Arena Entertainment, interactive games and displays, craft and steam fayre and an enormous funfair. In addition, the 2018 Show will include a huge Fun and Games Arena and an Engineering Zone both of which will be packed full of free activities to enjoy and the Deeds of Arms Gun Deck Experience, complete with gun’s firing, will offer a unique opportunity to hear about how Georgian sailors aboard HMS Temeraire found themselves in the thick of the action at the Battle of Trafalgar.

Appearing alongside the Monster Trucks in the Main Arena will be Team Green Rockets Children’s Motorcycle Display Team. Performing adrenaline-fuelled stunts, this talented troop of young boys & girls will astound you with their airborne stunts & formation riding performance. Local youngsters from the Royal Naval Volunteer Cadet Corps will compete in Field Gun Competition and, in keeping with the best of Naval Traditions, the award winning HMS Sultan Volunteer Band will be marching to a music medley. If that wasn’t enough a procession of classic steam vehicles will bring back memories of halcyon days.

The free Fun and Games Arena will offer a great mix of modern and traditional games and activities including inflatables, a petting zoo, Creepy Crawlies and exotic creatures and inflatables.

2018 is the Year of Engineering and HMS Sultan, as the home of Royal Navy Marine and Air Engineering training, will be celebrating this at the Show with an Engineering Zone packed full of hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) based activities, as well as interactive displays of static aircraft and military hardware.

For a calmer experience, visitors can walk around the steam fayre, view classic cars from across the region or browse through the large selection of charity, commercial and craft stalls on display.

Community is at the heart of the HMS Sultan Summer Show and the event promises to provide every visitor with an affordable day out of exceptional entertainment. What’s more as a not for profit event, the Show also ploughs back much needed funds into Service and Local Charities and organisations.
