Why celebrate VE Day?

VE Day – Victory in Europe Day – on 8 May 1945 was the day the Allied forces announced the surrender of Germany, which ended the Second World War in Europe. The big four Allied powers were Britain, the USA, France and the Soviet Union.

Celebrations began straight away throughout Britain, with more than one million celebrating in the streets. King George VI appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony with Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

VE Day is recognised every year with street parties and community gatherings, and commemorates the millions of civilians and millions in the armed forces who lost their lives in battle.

Trusted by parents, loved by children and encouraged by teachers.
