VE Day 75th Anniversary

Friday 8 May marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day – the official end of the Second World War in Europe.

In line with government advice, Victory in Europe Day (VE Day) events have been scaled back nationally. However, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate and mark the anniversary whilst staying safe at home.

We want everyone to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day safely. We may not be able to have the public celebrations many people planned, but we can still remember the heroes of WWII,” said Councillor Chris Mitchell, Worcester City Council’s Armed Forces Champion who spent 20 years in the Army himself.

Celebrate in your own home, or back garden if you have one, but please do not be tempted to visit relatives or friends. When the time is right, we will be able to get together and mark this momentous event as a community.
