Scarborough's VE Day Celebration Concert Cancelled

The organisers of the VE Day event in Scarborough has cancelled it due to Coronavirus.

The celebration concert was meant to be at St. Mary's Church on the 8th of May, the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

Organisers say having considered all the advice and directions emerging on the COVID-19 outbreak, and in the interests of public health, they have had to cancel the event.

Reverend Richard Walker said:

“As disappointing as this is, the interest of our community is at the heart of the decision but we are hopeful to do a later event.”

Tom Fox said:

“We hope that just maybe, just maybe the Coronavirus situation will change sufficiently to allow us to run a similar event to coincide with VJ Day (15/8) 75th Anniversary. We wait with anticipation.”
