Great day by all at the Easter Fun Day – many many thanks to all who turned up and to the volunteers who made this day a great success. We raised over £400 which will help fund our next big event – Military History Weekend!
Egg and spoon races, sack races & the Easter Hunt were enjoyed by all, including some adults! The airsoft shooting range and gun display was out for the first time in 2013, and it was nice to see so many people interested in the history of the fort, and enjoying the tours.
It seemed like we even managed to coax the sunshine out for the first time this year too!
Craig has put together a video which really manage to capture the atmosphere of what a super day it was:
A hearty congratulations goes to the winners of the raffle:
Also massive congratulations to both Mia Salvage and Lizzie MacMillan for winning the best-decorated-egg competition!
Again, many thanks to all who came and supported us, and to all who helped!
Charlotte has put together an amazing Easter based raffle prize! Tickets can be bought from the Fort on Sunday’s for £1 a strip. The lucky winner will be chosen at the Easter Fun Day on the 31st March.
Its nearly that time of year again for our Military History Weekend!
This year it will be the 1st and 2nd June.
We Need Your Help
We are looking for sponsorship for the event, we also need marshalls on the days and general help with the planning of the event. If you, or you know of someone that can help, either finacially or by donating their time, then please contact us on
ITV Meridian visited the fort today, and filmed a piece about our 2012 Heritage lottery bid which is being made this year. It features the volunteers doing work, plus Sharon, Pete and Wayne talking about the fort.

The Shoreham Fort iPhone app is now available for a limited introduction price of £1.49. It gives you a tour of the site as well as some original pictures of how the fort once looked.
The tour itself will take you around the fort giving you snippets of information at various locations.
I hope you enjoy it
RAFA Shoreham Airshow
Over the weekend, we held a stand at the RAFA Shoreham Airshow. Saturday started off with a hectic setting up of the stall, followed by some entertaining aerobatic action! Sunday unfortunately began with some dreary English summer weather, but the day soon brightened enough for some flying to begin!
Next volunteer day (with FREE tours)
On the 16th of September, we will be having a volunteer day (with the free tours as per usual) – This will be at the usual time of 11am till 5pm, with the tours at 1pm and 3pm.
Our events are usually organised on Facebook, but will also be listed here, in the top-left of the website. You can check out the Facebook events page for more information.

Thursday 28th June saw the Friends of Shoreham Fort become a registered charity, number 1147869. It’s taken a fair few months to dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s but we have finally done it.!
Sunday 19th August is another volunteer day, so we shall be down at the fort from 11am till 5pm, with free tours at 1pm and 3pm. We hope to see you down there!
