Seventy years after troops stormed the Normandy beaches D-Day will be remembered and celebrated in a concert live from the Albert Hall at the Wellesley cinema on Friday, June 6.
Be part of history as this incredible story is retold at the Royal Albert Hall through drama and narration featuring Patrick Stewart, Jeremy Vine, Dermot O’Leary and Louise Minchin accompanied by the BBC Concert Orchestra and a military band featuring musicians from all the UK services.

The D-Day operation during World War II was the largest amphibious invasion in world history and was executed by land, sea and air.
Launched on 6 June 1944, the simultaneous landing of allied forces took place on five separate beaches – Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword – in Normandy, France. It marked the beginning of the end of World War II.
Profits raised from this event will be donated to The Royal British Legion, SSAFA and SkillForce.
Concert 8pm, Doors Open 7.00pm
