Mighty Mortars at Fort Nelson This Friday Evening

Mighty Mortars at Fort Nelson This Friday Evening

On Friday 28th October there is a rare opportunity to explore Fort Nelson up on Portsdown Hill and experience the noise and power of the big guns after hours. From 6:30pm to 10pm you can discover what Victorian garrison life would have been like on a tour of the Fort’s barracks room and kitchen, where you can sample typical food and drink of the period. The costumed guide will escort you to the North Mortar Battery, where a uniformed detachment from Portsdown Artillery Volunteers will demonstrate a gun-drill and live-fire the powerful 13-inch mortar.

This event is part of the nationwide Museums at Night festival and tickets cost £15 for adults and £10 for children, tickets can be bought by telephoning 01329 848 532 or in person from the Fort Nelson Visitor Centre.
