‘Guerilla’ memorial placed under the Battle of Bamber Bridge memorial plaque outside Ye Olde Hob Inn, Church Rd, Bamber Bridge

Saturday June 22nd – Battle of Bamber Bridge 81st Anniversary at Ye Olde Hob Inn, Church Road, Bamber Bridge. 1pm – 8pm

Last June we worked with UCLan and South Ribble Borough Council to present a fantastic four days of celebration to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the Battle of Bamber Bridge in June 1943.  We even had a visit from the American Embassy Spokesperson, Aaron Snipe and the producer of the ‘Railway Children Return’ film, Jemma Rodgers. The film draws elements of its story from the events in Bamber Bridge in 1943.

Owing to the success of the event South Ribble Borough Council are planning an annual event. We’ll be there walking the history trail of the battlefield sites. Come and join us.

Further details to be announced soon.
