The Royal Navy village will be showcasing a huge range of dynamic and interactive displays and activities.

See if you are up for the challenge with the ‘Hang Tough’ event, run by the Physical Training Branch, or try navigating your way through a minefield using some of the mine detection equipment, and learn about the various types of ammunition, small arms, missiles and torpedoes.

Have a go on the Devonport Services RFC inflatable rugby stance, you can also watch their exciting demonstration in the arena at 1.35pm. Discover what it takes to work in the Defence Medical Group, children can get hands-on with the medical exhibits and get advice on medical emergency situations, as well as exploring the Battlefield Ambulance.

The MOD Police will have their RIB on display and will be on hand to answer any questions. Chat to the Plymouth Sea Cadets, and explore their rope work activity and display. There will be lots of advice available from the recruitment teams too, providing information on the many career opportunities within the Royal Navy and Royal Marines.
