What you’ll need

You will need to bring along photo ID and report to the main gate no later than 7pm in order gain access to the event. Under-18s will need to be accompanied by an adult who will also need photo ID.

As some activities are outdoors, we’d recommend bringing warm clothing, a waterproof jacket and comfortable shoes.

Guests are allowed to park in HMS Cambria's car park.

About the Royal Naval Reserve

The Royal Naval Reserve is the volunteer force of the Royal Navy. With a basic commitment of 24 days a year, you’ll take part in training exercises, defence drills and adventure activities, often overseas. You could even be mobilised for an operational tour of duty.

You'll develop skills that will benefit your career, experience adventures you couldn't have anywhere else, and serve your community – all alongside your day job.
