Celebrate VE Day 75 with the nation

“My dear friends, this is your hour. This is not victory of a party or of any class. It’s a victory of the great British nation as a whole.” (Winston Churchill, 8th May 1945)

Today, we commemorate – and celebrate – the end of the Second World War in Europe 75 years ago. Of course, things have been pared back somewhat – but there is still plenty happening over the course of the weekend across our nation.

This BBC News page has a good summary of what is planned:

The English Heritage have a page full of resources and information:
