The Channel Islands
While 2014 saw commemorations for the centenary of the first world war, this year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of the second. This will have particular resonance in the Channel Islands, the only part of the British Isles to be occupied during the war. To celebrate, the islands are collaborating to hold a five-week Heritage Festival, from 3 April-11 May, which will remind visitors of what life was like under German rule. Some sites, such as tunnels and bunkers dug into the islands, will be open to the public for the first time, and there will be guided walks, bike rides and tours, including a kayak tour following the routes spies used to travel between the islands. The Liberation day carnival on May 9 includes a concert and firework display on Guernsey’s picturesque St Peter Port seafront.
