Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

Guernsey is one of the Channel Islands in the English Channel near the French coast. The Islands of Guernsey are marking the 75th anniversary of their Liberation from WWII German occupying forces with a series of virtual, online and ‘at-home’ events.

Heritage75 is a major programme of 75 heritage-themed events and activities. It was due to take place across the islands between April and October but is
currently on hold.

The ‘virtual’ festival takes place over Guernsey’s Liberation Day (9 May) and the surrounding weekend, which is a Bank Holiday across the Channel Islands and a much-lauded annual celebration of freedom.

The programme includes online events led by broadcaster and historian, Dan Snow, and co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society,
Annie Barrows, as well as local experts and Government representatives. People can also get involved from their own home with interactive events
including a singalong with The Sofa Singers, a virtual tea party, and decoration making.

All events will be streamed on www.visitguernsey.com/heritage75 and will be available to watch afterwards on the same web page.
