Hungerford Commemoration of the 80th Anniversary of D-Day in 2024

West Berkshire will commemorate the eightieth anniversary of D-Day in 2024 with a special event befitting this historic occasion.

Although planning is at an early stage, it has been confirmed that a convoy of military vehicles will arrive in Hungerford at approximately 12.15pm on Saturday 29 June. The convoy will be similar to that around which the seventy-fifth anniversary of D-Day was commemorated at Greenham Common in June 2019.

The 2024 event will be hosted over the weekend of Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 June.

How to get involved

In addition to the convoy, there will be a full programme, to involve and embrace the entire community.

We welcome support from businesses, both practical and financial to help us deliver this historic event.

We also invite British and Allied civilian and uniformed living history personnel and local organisations like Cadets and Scouts to be part of the weekend including lining the streets when the convoy arrives and probably to be part of the commemorative parade on the Saturday evening.
