Welcome

VE Day 75 Logo

When VE Day dawns on 8th May 2020 it will be 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of World War Two. Six years of carnage and destruction had come to an end and millions of people took to the streets to celebrate peace, mourn their loved ones – and to hope for the future.

The 75th anniversary will provide our nation, and our friends around the world, with an opportunity to reflect on the enormous sacrifice, courage and determination of people from all walks of life who saw us through this dark and terrifying period. To commemorate this important time we are organising VE Day 75, a three-day international celebration that will take place from 8th May to 10th May 2020.

It will be an opportunity for us all to remember the enormous sacrifices that were made and to joyously celebrate, as people did 75 years ago, the arrival of peace.

We will remember the members of the Armed Forces from many countries who gave their lives or returned home injured in body and mind, the hard-working women and men who operated the factories, mines, shipyards and farms, and the ARP wardens, police officers, doctors, nurses, firemen, local defence volunteers and others who toiled selflessly on the home front.
