VE-DAY 75

In light of the current Government advice against public gatherings we have sadly had to cancel our plans for VE-Day 75 celebrations over the weekend of 8th to 10th May 2020.

Message from Bruno Peek, VE Day 75 pageantmaster

“At 3pm on Bank Holiday Friday, the nation will be asked to raise a glass to toast the heroes of World War II – men, women, children wherever they are. We’re not asking people to raise a glass of alcohol so everyone, all people, faiths and creeds, can join in. It can be done anywhere: in the supermarket, at home. The Prime Minister can even raise a glass from Number 10 if he’s not able to leave Downing Street by then.”
