More details coming soon……..
We are working on our programme to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
On 8th May 2020 it will be 75 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 to celebrate peace in Europe (conflict continued in the Far East until 15th August 1945), mourn their loved ones and to hope for the future.
The 75th 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.
Here’s what we have planned so far:
VE Day Parade
On the 8th May 2020 there will be a parade to mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. The Parade will be led by Scottish Pipers alongside the Royal British Legion (Brixham Branch) with representative groups from military and civilian organisations throughout the south-west.
There will lots going on around the town musical performers, historical re-enactments, 40’s dance troupes, military displays and fun activities for all ages including:
- Terri-May McNulty
- Andy Youngs
- Graham Harding
- The Riviera Ramblers
Free Guided Tours
We will be conducting a series of FREE guided walking tours each day Tours run from 11am -12 noon and begin at The Old Coaching Inn on Fore Street. The tours will highlight aspects of everday life in the 1940s.
To celebrate the legacy of freedoms passed to us by our forbears, join us for a fun evening of live 40s music and dance at the Scala Hall on 9th May 2020. There will be a bar on site where you can purchase beer on draft plus a selection of wines and soft drinks....
