Celebrations for Jersey Liberation Day announced

The timings and a list of celebrations for Liberation Day 2024 in Jersey have been announced.

On 9 May 2024 it will mark 79 years since Jersey was liberated from occupation and the end of WW2. This year's Liberation Day will involve a service of thanksgiving and re-enactment to mark the anniversary. The Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles to be occupied during the war.

Formation of marching contingents in the Royal Square will begin at 09:00 BST and the day will finish with a march past and motorcade at Midday.

At 10:30 there will be a special sitting of the States Assembly before members, crown officers and clergy take part in a procession to Liberation Square. A service of thanksgiving will begin at 11:05.

The Bailiff of Jersey, Sir Timothy Le Cocq, said: "This year we are highlighting the significance of service, on this most important day for all islanders, remembering amongst others those who fought, and continue to fight, for our freedom.

"I, as ever, look forward to standing together with fellow islanders to celebrate this historic occasion, to share the stories of those who lived through the Occupation and to join together with friends and family for this significant island event."
