Parade & Veterans
Let's get this event started!
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 8th May 2021 - Be ready and get you vantage point from 9,30am!
Mr Nigel Atkinson, the Queen’s Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire will be in attendance and will take the salute from HMS Sultan and HMS Collingwood troop; they will be part of a marching parade of over 120 strong, including cadet forces, uniformed groups & associations - veterans 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, Beach 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 A-Plant LUX. 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.
