About us

Normandy Day UK is a Coventry based peace education charity. We aim to “advance the education of the public about the impact of war and the sacrifices made by all service people, in particular those made at the landings in Normandy on 6th June 1944.”

We work with schools, veterans, Armed Forces charities and people from around the world now living in the UK to raise awareness of the impact of conflict and bring generations and cultures together in the cause of peace. We do this through school and community-based based events, educational trips and resources.

In 2014 the charity was nominated for a Coventry Community Cohesion Award and achieved runner-up in the community and voluntary sector category for our inter-generational work on our ‘Ingredients of Peace’ film.
