On VE Day 75 years ago, people took to the streets to dance and celebrate the end of the war.

This year, huge street parties and events were planned for the weekend beginning 8th May to remember that day 75 years ago. Unfortunately, due to the current global Coronavirus pandemic, many of these celebrations have been postponed or cancelled.

Here at the Focus, we’ve put together for you a VE Day Celebration from Home. Look out for posts where you’ll find links for making your own VE Day bunting, which you can print out and hang in your gardens or windows, a link and instructions for re-creating an iconic 1940s hairstyle – victory rolls, a wartime vinegar cake recipe which would make a fantastic addition to a garden party style picnic, instructions on how to dance the Lindy Hop Swing and more about what happened on VE Day itself all those years ago.

Although we will all be at home for this year’s VE Day, why not use our VE Day at Home pages to really make the most of it?

Do share your celebration photos with us and examples of your bunting, dances, cakes and hairdos and we’ll create a gallery online for everyone to see.

Email your photos to together with your name and description of the photo.
