ITS VE DAY 2020: WHAT HAPPENED ON VICTORY IN EUROPE DAY - AND HOW TO CELEBRATE THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY IN LOCKDOWN

 

VE Day stands for Victory in Europe Day which took place on Tuesday, May 8, 1945.

It was the day on which allied forces announced the surrender of Germany in Europe.

It marked the end of the war and sparked celebrations around the world.

How can I celebrate VE Day from home?

Members of the public are still being encouraged to take part in the ‘Nation’s Toast to the Heroes of WW2’ from the safety of their own home.

The toast will take place at 3pm on 8 May, and will serve as a thank you to those who gave their lives to ensure the freedom the country enjoys today.

People can also get involved in celebrations by joining their BBC Local Radio Station initiative and making their own VE Day Great British Bunting. If you would like to take part, you can download some templates from the BBC website.
