VE DAY 75 – one year away but the planning starts now

The 8th May 1945 was the day peace emerged after nearly six years of war, so the 75th anniversary on 8th May 2020 is an important milestone in our history.

Anniversary celebrations, VE Day 75, will cover the weekend of 8th – 10th May 2020, and will be an international celebration of peace – a time to remember, reflect and pay tribute to the millions who played such a vital part in achieving it.

A wide-ranging series of national events is planned for the anniversary weekend. But local churches and other organisations are encouraged to get involved in their communities.
