VE Day - 1 week to go

With VE Day a week away and Coronavirus lockdown meaning outdoor events have been cancelled, there's still many ways to celebrate online and from the safety of your own home.

At 11am there will be a two-minute national silence to remember the declaration of victory and the end of the Second World War in Europe.

At 3pm, Bruno Peek LVO OBE OPR is encouraging people to stand up and raise a glass to share the following ‘Toast’ – “To those who gave so much, we thank you,” from the safety and comfort of their own homes. (We will be joining in with a brew)

At 9pm The Queen will address the Nation, and urge members of the public to join in with a singalong of Vera Lynn's 'We'll Meet Again'.

The BBC are also offering downloadable bunting in a PDF format, if you wish to print off and decorate your home. Click here for more information.
