The Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth has been training officers on the River Dart for over 150 years, and to mark this occasion, they’re having an Open Day on Saturday 8th July.
Come along and learn about the history of the college and its royal connections, and how it still contributes to the modern Navy today.
The Plymouth Royal Marine Band will open the proceedings and during the day there will be a varied programme of music on offer culminating with Ceremonial Beat Retreat at 1500. There will be a variety of static displays including ribs and Gig boats, and the challenge of a climbing wall. There is to be Commando Troop unarmed combat display and the BRNC Brickwoods Field Gun team is due to carry out a display run followed by a timed run at 1400. Hot and cold refreshments are available throughout this family fun filled day and guests are requested not to bring picnics on site. 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.
