For the sixth year running, the village of Southwick joins with Southwick Park to commemorate the anniversary of D-Day by offering an exciting and unique opportunity for visitors from all over the world to breathe in the atmosphere of those historic days at the nerve-centre of Operation Overlord. (Southwick is just north of the city of Portsmouth on the South Coast of England, PO17 6EA).
WE ARE DELIGHTED TO CONFIRM OUR EVENT PARTNER, FOR THE SECOND YEAR RUNNING, IS THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE ROYAL NAVY, whose fundraising and restoration of LCT 7074, the sole surviving D-day landing craft, is progressing in time for the D-Day 75th anniversary year.
