SBE are excited to announce that Saunton D-Day 2019 has been confirmed for Saturday/Sunday (15th/16th June) Saunton Beach, North Devon. The only living history event of its kind in the UK, Saunton D-Day takes place on historical location – amongst the dunes and on the beach where 10,000+ American GIs trained and planned for their assault on Omaha and Utah beaches.
Braunton Burrows was home to the Assault Training Center (ATC) between September 1943 and April 1944. Within this huge sand dune area remnants from the training facility exist in the form of concrete landing craft, bazooka wall and the ruins of a Matilda tank.
Saunton D-Day 2019 is a FREE show to the public and promises to be very special event as it marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day, see What’s On.
