70th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings16th May 2014
June 6th marks a very important day in the history of Europe and indeed the whole world. On that day, 70 years ago in 1944, more than 150,000 allied troops took part in the largest seaborne invasion in history as part of a grand effort to free Europe from the yoke of Nazi oppression and terror. To celebrate this remarkable feat of human endeavour, Mill Rythe Holiday Village is staging a very special event to not only honour the sacrifices of those that took part, but also offer an entertaining and meaningful adult-only break for those in need of it.
Our event – “Remember When? 70th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings” – starts on June 6th. We’re offering a 3-night break in the holiday village for just £129 (adults only). Those 3 nights include a fantastic array of cabaret-style entertainment from the era, including the jazzy burlesque stylings of Miss Dolly Rose. Her unique brand of charming and eye-popping dance is sure to fill the room with an irresistible buzz.
We also have an appearance from Viv the Spiv, a 1940s wheeler-dealer character whose quick wit and sharp quips will have the audience rolling in the aisles. Finally, the break is completed with the flamboyant and mystical magic of Romany! This charismatic performance will have you clapping your hands and scratching your head at the same time. It sounds impossible but it’s sure to happen!
Join us at Mill Rythe for this fitting tribute to those who gave their lives so that we in Britain could have the right to enjoy ourselves, be free to travel and continue to revel in and appreciate the culture and heritage passed down from our forefathers. D-Day was one of the most significant turning points of the Second World War, where free men charged into the ugly face of fascism and challenged it to ensure that the British way of life would continue. Celebrate with us this year at Mill Rythe, nestled right on the English Channel and offering splendid views of the waters traversed by those thousands upon thousands of heroes now 70 years ago.
