VE Day


Victory in Europe Day, generally known as VE Day, is a day celebrating the formal acceptance by the Allies of World War II of Nazi Germany’s unconditional surrender of its armed forces on 8 May 1945.

On Friday 8th May, VE Day 2020 takes place on Friday May 8 in the United Kingdom. This year, it will be on a Bank Holiday – a decision that has been made specially to honour the 75th anniversary.

Below there are lots of activities to help you to celebrate whilst staying safe at home.
