Milestones Summer Fete

Come and join in the fun at the Milestones Summer Fete on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 June. Enjoy a good old-fashioned family fete on the cobbled streets of Hampshire’s living history museum, with traditional games to have a go at, stalls to browse, tea and cake in our tea tent and much, much more!

On Saturday 22 June the fabulous Spitfire Sisters will perform live at 1pm and again at 2.30pm and the D-Day75 Convoy makes a stop at Milestones as part of their route at 12pm. 

Plus: Face painting, traditional Fairground Organ, traditional games, Guess the Name of the Teddy, Guess the Sweets in the Jar, craft stalls, costumed interpreters and our vintage Tea Tent

The fun continues on Sunday 23 June with face painting, the Fairground Organ, tradition games, Guess the Name of the Teddy, Guess the Sweets in the Jar, craft stalls, costumed interpreters and more.

Special admission price just £3.50*!

Milestones will also be part of a Drive to Remember on Saturday 22 June, as a convoy of classic military vehicles makes a stop at the museum as they recreate General Eisenhower’s drive from DDay Headquarters on the afternoon of 5 June 1944.

The 50 vehicles escorted by 25 motorcycle outriders of the Royal British Legion Riders Branch will travel via the A32 to Alton, and then via the B3349 to former RAF Lasham home of the Lasham Gliding Society. More vehicles will join here and the convoy will continue on to Milestones, arriving at approximately noon.

If you're joining us for our Summer Fete on Saturday, this will be an exciting addition to your day!
