Head to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard for D-Day Revisited on the 1 and 2 of June, 2019.
This weekend of re-enactments, music and Second World War ships will commemorate and give insight to one of Second World War's greatest tipping points, the landings that liberated France and then Europe.
A Higgins Landing Craft and a DUKW will be on display alongside Dunkirk little ships and other vessels used on D-Day that left from Portsmouth to travel over to Normandy. There will also be plenty of opportunity to visit the historic boats along with a dozen Dunkirk little ships which will be joining us alongside newly installed pontoons for the weekend.
Music will be performed by The Royal Navy Band and a range of 1940s inspired acts singing music from the period. There will be singing and dancing by The Polka Dots, The Charlalas and dancing with Company B.
Re-enactment groups will include Ubique ROL, a Second World War artillery group; Deco In Style, an RAF operations room display and The Royal Navy Beachhead Commando Group.
It's a chance to look at a snapshot of history up close while commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
