THE Royal Air Force Museum Cosford will be marking the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord, which began the final stages of the Second World War in Europe, with a D-Day themed Orchestral Concert.

In three crucial months in 1944, Britain and its Allies progressed from landing 150,000 troops on five Normandy beaches, to a victory march through Paris.

The highly-decorated Glebe Symphonic Winds, one of the UK's leading wind orchestras, will perform for visitors on Sunday (June 15) at 3pm in the museum's auditorium.

The performance will last approximately one hour and tickets for the concert are now available to purchase via the Museum's website www.rafmuseum.org and cost £5 per person.

For further information on the D-Day Afternoon Concert at Cosford, please call the museum on 01902 376200 or visit the museum website at www.rafmuseum.org
