VE (‘Victory in Europe’) Day marks the end of World War Two. On 8th May 1945, the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, made the announcement on the radio at 3pm that the war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany’s surrender the day before.
Celebrations immediately began throughout Britain and more than one million people celebrated in the streets with street parties and parades. Since then, VE day has been recognised and celebrated every year by people dressing in red, white and blue, street parties, community gatherings and acknowledgement from the Armed Forces.
Although celebrations for the VE day will be very different this year, there are still lots of ways in which we can remember and mark the occasion whilst following the government’s advice to stay home, stay safe and save lives.
