VE Day Celebrations for Greyfriars Children

Victory In Europe (VE Day)

75 years ago on Friday, Britain celebrated an end to WW2 in Europe with parties going on in virtually every street in Britain. Since then, we have celebrated each year on the 8th May. There are lots of virtual parties taking place and virtual choirs are getting together on Zoom to sing wartime classics.
