Britannia Royal Naval College will be open to visitors between 1100-1600 on Saturday 27th July 2019.

There will be a full day of activities in the College, including musical performances by the BRNC Volunteer Band, the Chivenor Military Ladies Choir, the Exmouth Sea Shanty Men and Her Majesty’s Band of Royal Marines and a ceremonial Beat the Retreat. There will be a variety of static displays including military helicopters, vehicles, dive equipment and boats, as well as a range of classic vehicles and fast cars. There will be tours of the College as well as opportunities to drive a ship in the navigation simulator. The Open Day will be raising money for the Royal Navy Royal Marines Charity with a couple of key visitors – Commander Jane Allen who has walked around the UK for the charity and the team from HMS Oardacious who will be rowing the Atlantic over the winter.

Hot and cold refreshments are available throughout this free family fun filled day, as well as bouncy castles, face painting and petting areas for the children. It should also be noted that no pets, other than Guide Dogs will be allowed in on the day. For those a little less agile a minibus shuttle will run from the main gate throughout.
