Part of the commemorative programme will feature a convoy of approximately 80 classic military vehicles arrive in the town and drive through the high street to the Triangle Field show site.

The convoy will depart Basingstoke at 10am on 29th June and will drive through Basingstoke to Kingsclere, and onto Greenham Common where the convoy wil pause for a small stop.

After departing Greenham Common, the convoy will drive though the centre of Newbury and into the A4 towards Hungerford, West Berkshire. The convoy will drive though the High Street which will be decorated with union flags and onto the show site at Triangle Field.

Hungerford’s’ weekend of commemoration will see a full programme of activities and events including parades; display; history talks and the unveiling of a D-Day commemorative stone on Hungerford Common.

Join us for this historic event – unique to West Berkshire and the surrounding areas – to mark the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

The event is raising funds for the Royal British Legion Riders Branch Poppy Appeal and local charities.
