70th Commemoration Of The Battle Of The Atlantic
24 - 28 May
The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest continuous military campaign of the Second World War and was pivotal to the overall success of the allied forces. To mark the 70th anniversary, Liverpool is proud to be the national focus for the commemorations and will host a series of events which will be a fitting tribute to the courage and fortitude of every man and woman involved.
Liverpoolâ€™s waterfront and city centre will come alive with a raft of activities including a veterans parade, a special band concert by Her Majestyâ€™s Royal Marines at the Philharmonic Hall, a 40s themed party at St Georgeâ€™s Hall, a fly past, a fast roping rescue style display on the river involving the Royal Marines and a specially commissioned exhibition to commemorate the veterans. There will also be helicopters, artillery, simulators, underwater divers, dancers and music - so get ready for an action packed adventure.
With a wealth of things to see and do expect the unexpected.
