D-day Concert at Bexhill Heritage Coronation Bandstand – Saturday June 08

It was on 6th June 1944 that allied service personnel risked their lives in atrocious weather to invade France. By doing so they hammered a very large mail in the coffin of Nazi rule over Europe.

Eighty years later we celebrate that great achievement and remember the sacrifices made by all sides on Normandy’s beaches. Our D-day memorial concert offers an opportunity to celebrate that wartime generation through the music of their time.

Battle u3a Ukulele Group (BUGS) – 11.30am
We are a jolly band of players, who meet weekly to play for fun and also venture out regularly to entertain – on bandstands, at rural events and in care homes. With our varied repertoire, there is something for everyone to enjoy and we love nothing more than an audience which sings along, taps their feet or even dances a little jig! Raising money for local charities and good causes is an added bonus.
