A Nation's Celebration

Time to celebrate bu't we must remember 

When VE Day dawns on 8th May 2021 it will be 76 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the war in Europe. Years of carnage and destruction had come to an end and millions of people took to the streets and pubs to celebrate peace, mourn their loved ones and to hope for the future, but not forgetting those still in conflict until 15th August when it was announced that Japan had surrendered unconditionally to the Allies, effectively ending World War II.

The 76th anniversary will provide our nation, and our friends around the world, with an opportunity to reflect on the enormous sacrifice, courage and determination of people from all walks of life who saw us through this dark and terrifying period. Knowing that the original plans for the large scale 75th celebrations were cancelled due the COVID-19 crisis it is very important that The Lee Victory Festival provides a platform for all of to celebrate. 

It will be an opportunity for us all to remember the enormous sacrifices that were made at home and abroad and to joyously celebrate as people did 76years ago, the arrival of peace in Europe.

Even with the cancelled LEE VE75's on the 8th May 2020 we did take participate in the following:

13.55 – The Last Post (Marine Parade War Memorial) 

 

15.00 – The Playing of Battle’s O’er and and VE 75 Years (Marine Parade War Memorial)
