Parties and Celebration

Enjoy the whole weekend of celebrations and parties. The weekend offers the chance to organise something really special to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day, marking the end of the war in Europe 75 year’s ago.

It’s a unique chance to bring communities of all nationalities in your town, village, city or other locations of your choice, together in peace and common friendship. Those twinned with those overseas may consider inviting them to join in the celebrations, providing an opportunity to reinforce international bonds and reflect on the importance of peace on the occasion of this unique anniversary.

Enjoy a whole day of celebrations and parties. The weekend offers the chance to organise something really special to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

We’re expecting parties galore in streets, pubs, neighbourhoods, schools and village halls, perhaps with food and dress reflecting the 1940s. Wartime loaf, eggless sponge cake, vegetable turnovers, curried carrots and Lord Woolton pie. And don’t forget the Spam!
