East Lothian VE Day Celebration, Friday 8th May

On Friday 8th May the Nation will mark the 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe which marks and remembers the end of the Second world War in Europe

Given the current global pandemic crisis we face due to Covid-19 many of the planned celebrations and acts of remembrance planned across East Lothian for the weekend of 8th – 10th May have been cancelled or changed to reflect the need to keep the nation safe.

However, commemorating this historic event from home or the work place is still encouraged as best as we can. It can be a time for everyone in East Lothian to remember the immeasurable sacrifices that were made at home and abroad and to celebrate 75 years of victory and peace in Europe
