The 2024 Southwick Revival event, which commemorates the D-Day landings and is held in the village where much of the planning for the D-Day landings occurred, takes place this weekend.

Visitors will be able to experience some of the sights and smells of 1940s England including a period vehicle motorcade, 1940s school lessons, Mother Attwell’s 1940s tearoom, field gun runs, a steam bus, walking tours, 1940s hairdressers and a wartime singalong.

The event starts at 9.30am on both Saturday and Sunday. Tickets can be bought at the gate but can also be purchased in advance. For more details go to southwickrevival.co.uk

Up to 2023, the event has generated £229,000 for charities.
