VE Day

Friday 8 May 2020 marks 75 years since Nazi Germany’s formal surrender at the end of the Second World War.

On VE (Victory in Europe) Day in 1945, millions took to the streets to celebrate peace after years of devastating war.

Sadly, plans for street parties across England with swing dancing to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War have been delayed as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.

Instead, English Heritage are are encouraging everyone to mark the anniversary with their own VE Day celebration at home, and their VE Day 75 pack includes 1940s recipes, dance steps and even a Spotify playlist to help you plan.
