Liberation Day Tickets Released

Tickets for Jersey's first in-person Liberation Day celebrations since 2019 are now available.

1,600 people will be able to sit in Liberation Square on Monday 9 May to mark 77 years since the end of the German Occupation.

Celebrations had to be scaled back in 2020 and 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex have confirmed they will be attending the service during their upcoming Royal visit to the island.

Tickets can be ordered for free online, or collected from the Royal Court building for people without internet access.

Senior citizens can book tickets by contacting their Parish Hall before Friday 29 April.

The Liberation Day service will open from 8:30am, with everyone attending seated by 9:15am.

Any seats that are unoccupied will be made available by marshals and people will be made aware over a PA system.

Those who can't get a ticket will be able to watch from a big screen at the Weighbridge.

Steve Cartwright from the Bailiff's Chambers, which organises the event, says it's set to be an exciting day:

"Having no option but to cancel the Liberation Day events for 2020 and 2021, it will be great to be able to host this event that I hope will meet the expectations of our senior citizens who lived through that most challenging time, along with young families and members of the public. 

As with previous years, all attending will be able to enjoy the formal service either seated in Liberation Square or by watching from Weighbridge Place, see the very colourful march past at the end of the service, and an afternoon of entertainment in Weighbridge place."
