Chewing gum, doughnuts, new nylons and thousands of smooth-talking, quick-witted soldiers...
Cornwall will never forget the day the Yanks arrived!
An epic promenade show performed through the garden, based on the true stories from the thousands of US troops who left from Trebah’s beach and the local residents who witnessed it.
From the warm plains of Maryland, USA to the cold coastal villages of Cornwall, follow handsome and hopeful US 29th Infantry Division Technical Sgt Joe Miller on his poignant journey to the Nazi-occupied beaches of Normandy, France.
Based on remarkable real wartime experiences as well as stories recalled by the residents of Mawnan Smith, Operation Neptune commemorates the 75th anniversary of DDay with the compelling story of an American GI’s experience of Cornwall at war.
