These special gun firings are carried out by uniformed detachments of the Portsdown Artillery Volunteers (PAV), and include authentic gun drills and talks.

They will be firing the 13-inch mortar. This little gun certainly packs a powerful punch and the firing is a spectacular experience in the confines of the North Mortar Battery.

Ear defenders will be available.
