Safeguarding Memories for the 80th Anniversary of D-Day

Normandy, forever etched in history by the courageous souls who fought during the D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy, is gearing up for a monumental event – the 80th Anniversary in 2024. As we prepare to commemorate peace, liberty, and reconciliation, it's important to ensure that the events unfold smoothly and safely. This is where insurance, particularly public liability insurance and event insurance, steps in to protect the planned memories and honour the heroes.

Reflecting on the summer of 1944, when soldiers from across the globe converged on Normandy to defeat Nazism and restore freedom. 

Every anniversary serves as an opportunity to honour the brave.  This year marks the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day landings. 

Organising events and beacon lighting especially those of historical significance, comes with risks.


Public liability insurance protects from potential legal claims arising from injuries or property damage during the event. This insurance is designed not to overshadow the commemorative spirit.

Event insurance is essential. It safeguards against unforeseen circumstances that could jeopardise the success of the anniversary celebrations. Whether it's adverse weather conditions, unexpected cancellations, or any other unforeseen challenges, having event insurance in place ensures that the show can go on, providing peace of mind to organisers and attendees alike.

If you are a Trustee for the organisation, are you covered with Trustee Indemnity insurance?

As we prepare to celebrate the 80th Anniversary of D-Day this June, let's remember that a safe and smooth event is not just a logistical consideration but a moral responsibility. Public liability insurance and event insurance play pivotal roles in safeguarding the memories, honouring the sacrifices, and allowing us to come together to celebrate peace, liberty, and reconciliation.

Lest we forget the importance of protecting the past as we move forward into the future.
