How to celebrate Liberation Day 2019

 

To this day, islanders continue to celebrate their personal and families’ freedom from five years of German occupation from 1940 to 1945.

9 May is a significant date in the Bailiwick’s history and this is one of the most popular public holidays on the local events calendar.

It’s a time for locals and residents to reflect on the past, dress up in vintage clothing and reflect on the hardships endured under German rule.

To commemorate the 74thanniversary of Liberation Day, there is entertainment planned throughout the day. Plus there are plenty of activities for kids to enjoy.

The schedule of events features:

4pm – 10.30pm – Randalls beer tent open
