VE Day Window Displays


We are appealing for city centre businesses to create a fitting window display to mark VE Day celebrations during the weekend of Friday, 8 May to Sunday, 10 May.

This year’s early May bank holiday is moving from its usual Monday 4 May to Friday 8 May to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day – to enable people to pay tribute to those who served in one of the most significant events in our country’s history.

The occasion will remember the contribution of British, Commonwealth and Allied armed forces personnel, those who contributed to the war effort and safeguarded the Home Front.

As well as marking the Allies’ victory in 1945, the bank holiday will serve as an opportunity to pay tribute to those who have served and continue to serve in the UK Armed Forces and their families.

Please let us know if you are taking park in our VE Day window display project so we can promote your business and take photos of your shop fronts. Email or speak to our Rangers.
