Plans for Liberation Day announced

Share this page

Wednesday 03 April 2024

A wide variety of events have been planned for this year's Liberation Day.

Plans announced today include the popular cavalcade, which will again go from The Imperial Hotel to Town via the coast, music and entertainment in Town and at Castle Cornet during the day, a 1940s-themed concert in the early evening followed by the traditional fireworks display to end the day.

The Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, responsible for coordinating Liberation Day said extra activities for children have been put in place this year as momentum is gradually built, heading towards the significant milestone of next year's 80th anniversary event.

Full details of events for this year can be found on at www.liberationday.gg, but include:

Additionally, some out of Town events will also be held for islanders who want to enjoy parish celebrations. These include the St Pierre du Bois parish hosting a Liberation Day celebration on L'Eree Common, a tea party in the Vale, and the Last Post hosting a variety of events for all ages.

Deputy Sue Aldwell, Member of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture and Liberation Day Organising Committee, said:

'As with every year a huge amount of work goes into organising events for islanders to enjoy on Liberation Day so I'd like to thank everyone involved in what I hope will be a wonderful day. We always aim to ensure there are a range of events and activities that can be enjoyed by all islanders, of all ages, and this year it will very much be possible for people to spend all day in Town if that is their wish, with always something to see or do. Likewise there will be fantastic events out of Town which I think will be really well attended and enjoyed. We are very much seeking to use this year as an opportunity to build momentum towards next year, which will be a huge event, like in previous years, as the island celebrates 80 years since our liberation.'
