Weymouth to mark D-Days 65th anniversary

A WEEKEND of commemoration and celebration has been planned in Weymouth to mark the 65th anniversary of D-Day.

On Saturday and Sunday, June 6 and 7, Weymouth seafront, the Pavilion Theatre and the Nothe Fort will host a number of family events bringing to life the D-Day spirit.

All the family is invited to attend a D-Day Picnic in the Park in the Nothe Gardens on Saturday, June 6, from 2pm to 6pm. There will be displays of military vehicles, stalls, games including a Ration Book Trail, and live music from folk group Bag of Rats.

The Nothe Fort will also be hosting two days of nostalgic events and activities including a proms concert and plenty of historical re-enactments such as a field hospital, bomb disposal, and mine detection display and radio communications.

The ever-popular Matchstick Fleet will be on display and visitors will have the chance to ‘dig for victory’, have a look at military vehicles, try cooking with wartime rations, and much more. This promises to be a memorable evening ending with flag-waving, fireworks, and a spectacular surprise. We hope people will come along, hopefully in fancy dress, and make the most of this historic weekend.
