D-Day beacons – 6 June 2024

This year marks the 80th anniversary of D-Day, when Allied forces mounted the largest amphibious invasion the world has ever witnessed.

On 6 June 1944, Operation Overlord saw over 5,000 ships and landing craft set down more than 130,000 troops on five Normandy beaches in an action that would bring about the liberation of north-west Europe from Nazi occupation.

Villages, towns, cities and organisations of all sizes are being asked to mark this anniversary by lighting a beacon. Full details can be found at www.d-day80beacons.co.uk

There is also a detailed event guide, which can be downloaded by anyone planning to light a beacon.

Beacons across the UK will be lit at 9.15pm on Thursday 6 June 2024. If you are holding such an event, please let us know as soon as possible by calling us on 0306 799 0019 or completing our online form.
