Parade & Veterans
Lest we forget VE & VJ Days
With the sense of remembrance, we need to be sure that The Lee Victory Festival respects the sacrifices of those who fought during WWII so enabling us of today to be able to celebrate the freedom we have.
The Lee Victory Festival parade will start from Daedalus on Saturday 25th September 2021 at 11.20 - Be ready and get your vantage point from 10,00am!
Rear Admiral Iain Henderson CB CBE DL, Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire will be in attendance and will take the salute from HMS Sultan and HMS Collingwood platoons; they will be part of a marching parade of over 300 strong, including cadet forces, uniformed groups & associations - WWII veterans and Veteran Associations and re-enactors with their vintage vehicles, therefore its going to be an amazing sight for Lee on the Solent.
The route will be just over a mile long & will proceed along Richmond Road, Monsterrat Road, High Street, Cambridge Road, Marine Parade back into Richmond Road meaning there’s plenty of space, so make sure you get your vantage point to watch the parade.
To enable the parade to take place, there will be an approved road closure scheme in operation, which will be managed by Sunbelt Traffic Management. Full road closure & car park details will be released in due course.
With The Lee Victory Festival, it’s our vision to bring together those veterans, men & women of military & civilian background from 1945 who experienced VE Day first hand and give them the platform to share those experiences with the younger generations of Lee on the Solent; meaning their memories can be captured, shared and celebrated.
