Plans are under way to mark the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings in the town linked to the most famous conflict in English history. A small steering committee has been set up to work on a series of events in Battle, near Hastings, East Sussex, on October 14, 2016.
The events aim to mark the significance of the battle which altered the course of history in medieval England and led to the Norman Conquest.
It is hoped that a senior Royal Family member will attend the commemoration as the Queen helped mark the 900th anniversary in 1966.
A lunch with invited guests from Normandy and further afield will kick off events being organised by the steering committee, called Concorde 950, led by Peter Field, the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex.
