The Committee for Education, Sport & Culture has announced two new events to be held in Town on Liberation Day this year, in response to community feedback.
A full static display of all the military vehicles, vintage cars and tractors from the cavalcade will take place along the seafront in St. Peter Port from 3-5pm on Liberation Day for the community to inspect and enjoy. That will be followed by a 1940s-themed concert on Crown Pier between 5pm-9pm, with food and drink
available followed by the traditional fireworks display.
With the annual parade and church service in the morning, and music and entertainment at Castle Cornet, with free entry all day from 11-4pm, it means islanders can enjoy activities in Town throughout the day if they wish.
Final plans for the 2023 cavalcade have also been confirmed by the Cavalcade Committee, which includes representatives from the Guernsey Military Vehicle Group, Guernsey Old Car Club and The Vintage and Classic Tractor Club.
Following feedback from Cavalcade drivers, it was clear that last year's route, which included some tight turns and steep hills caused challenges for some of the vintage vehicles. This meant that some vehicles broke down and had to drop out without completing the route.
