A DAY of events will take place in Droitwich this Thursday, June 6, to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

The D-Day Landings on June 6, 1944 was the largest air, naval and land operation in history.

Allied forces crossed the English Channel and landed on the coast of Normandy to liberate Europe and defeat Germany in the Second World War.

As part of the commemorations and celebrations on Thursday, June 6, people can view a D-Day exhibition from 10am to 7.30pm at the Droitwich Heritage and Information Centre. That exhibit gets under way the day before – on Wednesday, June 5 – and runs until June 13.

From 6pm there will be live 1940s entertainment outside the Heritage Centre and a display by the 2516 (Droitwich) Squadron Air Cadets at 7.45pm.

And a beacon will be lit at St Augustine’s Church at 9pm.




Everyone is welcome to the event which has been organised by Droitwich Spa Town Council.
