On Thursday June 6 events are being held nationwide to commemorate the 80th anniversary of D-day. To mark the occasion Stamford Town Council is proud to have organised a special D-Day 80 commemoration event at Stamford Recreation Ground. An evening of family-friendly entertainment is planned with plenty of live music, food, vintage themed singers, and historical re-enactments.

The evening will culminate in the lighting of the beacon, coinciding with the lighting of beacons throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man.
