D-Day

Event date: 6th June
Redruth unveiled, June

6th June marks 80 years since D-Day, join us in Redruth as we commemorate the 80th anniversary.

6th June is the 80th anniversary of D-Day when thousands of troops landed on the beaches of Normandy to begin the liberation of Europe. We will be marking the anniversary with a series of special events in the town centre on the day.

It will begin at 8am at The Miner Statue when our Town Crier Max Morrison will make the D-Day 80 Proclamation, at the same time as many other towns and cities across the UK and the world.

Then at 8.30pm, there will be live music followed by the reading of the International Tribute and lighting of the Lamp Light of Peace at 9.15pm.

We also hope to mark National Fish & Chip Day and share the Redruth community’s memories and stories from the time – if you have photos, stories, or personal accounts of D-Day, we encourage you to share them with us.
