Portsmouth D-Day celebrations 2020

  • Description

  • Dates & Prices


To commemorate the anniversary of the D-Day landings, a host of special events will take place across the UK and France. Last year The Ministry of Defence announced one of the biggest mobilisations of the UK Armed Forces in recent years, including over 4,000 personnel, 11 Royal Navy vessels and multiple aircraft, including Spitfire.

Portsmouth, where much of the landing force sailed from in 1944, is one of the focal points of the UK commemorations and hosted the UK national event last year.  

It's now been 76 years since the world famous D-day landings and we still pay our respects every year due to the great sacrifice thousands of men made for their country that day and during the entire war. 

The common will be bustling with veterans, current serviceman, families of servicemen and patriots alike.  Come and show your support for our troops and make a day out of it!
