Celebrating VE Day 75
This coming bank holiday weekend, 8 to 10 May 2020, marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War in Europe. To commemorate this important anniversary the three day international festival ‘VE Day 75’ was planned. But due to the Coronavirus and social distancing measures, all planned public VE Day 75 events are cancelled.
But even in lockdown, it’s still possible for us to have a shared moment to celebrate the end of the Second World War in Europe, and to commemorate the suffering endured by men and women in wartime across the world.
Here are some resources to help you have a great VE Day 75 At Home party, or learn more about the history of VE Day:
- VE Day 75 Tookit from the UK Government
- Bletchey Park’s VE Day Activity Pack
- English Heritage’s VE Day Party Pack

Also a Reminder for Form 1 to wear Red, White and Blue on Thursday 7th May to celebrate VE Day
