KEIGHLEY will join with the rest of the nation today in commemorating the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

A beacon is being lit in Town Hall Square at 9.15pm – as beacons in towns, cities and villages across the UK are illuminated simultaneously.

During the evening, from 6.30pm, people will be able to enjoy 1940s-style music and entertainment in the square.

The event, being organised by Keighley Town Council, is part of activities taking place throughout the country – and beyond – to mark the anniversary.

A town council spokesperson says: “We are joining many others to remember the brave men and women who took part in D-Day – not only from our nation but from countries including America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Norway, Greece, France, Czechoslovakia, Rhodesia and Poland.

“Everyone is invited to come along to Town Hall Square.”
