VE75 Celebration ideas

Plans to mark the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe on Friday 8 May have changed due to coronavirus. But there are still lots of ways you can get involved and show support in marking the day.


The government has announced a revised VE Day events programme:…/her-majesty-the-queen-to-send-a-messag… which includes a national toast at 3pm and an address from Her Majesty The Queen at 9pm.


The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has developed a new website that includes ideas for homemade VE Day bunting, original recipes, games, and educational and creative activities for children.


The Royal British Legion is inviting people across the UK to join a 2-minute silence at 11am on Friday 8 May


Broadstairs & St. Peter's Town Council is planning a virtual celebration . 


Age UK Thanet Ltd is asking people to nominate a veteran or an unknown hero by calling 01843 223881 and donating £8 for them to receive a meal.


If you are organising a stay at home party, please be responsible, maintain social distancing and be considerate towards your neighbours.
