TO commemorate the anniversary of D-Day, a village will be turning back time and offering the opportunity for visitors to breathe in the atmosphere of the historic days at the nerve-centre of Operation Overlord.

The village of Southwick, near Fareham, will be dressed for Revival on Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7.

Entry and parking are free for the event where there will be street markets, walking tours, tea rooms, and other attractions.

The High Street will be closed for the revival and more information can be found by visiting the website at
