D-Day Anniversary Events Across The South
Events marking the 70th anniversary of D-Day can be found on a new events calendar provided by the D-Day Museum, Portsmouth. Aiming to draw together in one place as many D-Day and Second World War related events as possible, the calendar is searchable and will help members of the public find out what is going on in their area. From military vehicle shows and re-enactments, to guided walks, talks and exhibitions, you can find all types of events listed on the D-Day Museum’s website! Event organisers from across the South of England are encouraged to add to the calendar to publicise their events; contributing to the creation of a diverse network of commemorative and informative activities.
D-Day on your Doorstep
To put the commemorations into context, the D-Day Museum website now also features ‘D-Day on your Doorstep,’ a searchable resource illustrating the wide-ranging and diverse sites connected to D-Day across the UK including: troop camps and training bases, airfields that took part in the campaign, locations where the Mulberry Harbours were built, and places where the Allied armies loaded onto ships and landing craft bound for Normandy – as well as relevant museums and visitor attractions. Organisations and the public are encouraged to add further locations to ‘D-Day on your Doorstep’, via the D-Day Museum website.
