VE Day celebrations 8th – 10th May 2020, a weekend to remember!

The 8th May 2020 is the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day. On this day in 1945 the horror of World War II came to an end. People around the world celebrated and rejoiced the end of nearly six years of war, which had cost the lives of millions and brought untold suffering and misery. 

The 75th anniversary is a time of celebration, as well as solemn reflection on the sacrifice, courage and determination of extraordinary people to whom we owe an enormous debt of gratitude. 

To commemorate this important time, there will be three days of international celebrations.
