Saturday 24 to Sunday 25 May
 at HMS Belfast, Morgans Lane, Tooley Street
On 6 June 1944, HMS Belfast reportedly fired the first shots
on D-Day, the most significant campaign fought by the
western Allies during the Second World War. To mark the 70th
anniversary of this historic event, families are invited to
take part in a weekend of D-Day themed activities on board
HMS Belfast. Receive your mission as you board the ship and
search for clues around the ship to learn about HMS
Belfast's role in the D-Day campaign. Discover how sailors
communicated at sea by simulating Morse code messages and
watch our live radio team in action as they send messages
across the globe from the ship's Bridge Wireless Office.
Immerse yourself in the midst of a battle during the Second
World War with the Gun Turret Experience, then step up to
the roll of Captain and direct your own fleet on a convoy
mission from the Operations Room, the nerve centre of the
ship. Drop-in at one of our free family activities – or
both! Get messy at the Making Medals workshop and create
your own plaster cast medal to commemorate servicemen and
women who took part in Operation Overlord. If you're feeling
more artistic, impress your friends and family at Tattoo
T-Shirts by designing your very own t-shirt, inspired by
traditional Navy tattoos, to commemorate the 70th
Anniversary of D-Day.
