Originally an RAF base, the site was taken over by the Royal Navy in 1945 and renamed HMS Sultan in 1956. This year it celebrates 65 years as a center of excellence for the Royal Navy Air and Marine Engineering.
The annual event, which had to be canceled last year due to Covid-19, draws thousands of visitors while raising valuable funds for service charities.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and there will be plenty of family activities to participate in before the sparklers are lit.
The event promises to be a spectacle with fire eaters, a fun fair and a bonfire. In addition, there will be a wide choice of food and Sultan’s sailors will be selling glow sticks and pick & mixes to benefit charity.
The evening will end with a final fireworks display at 8 p.m.
Tickets are £ 14 for a family of four, £ 6 for an adult and £ 5 for children under 14. Children under five can attend for free.
Discounted tickets can be purchased now from HMS Sultan reservation site and are also available from a number of local vendors including the Tourist Information Center and the Tesco Hypermarket in Gosport.
