Whitby To Do Virtual VE75 Day Celebrations

Whitby To Do Virtual VE75 Day Celebrations

Published by Karen Liu at 11:56am 16th April 2020.

Whitby is going to mark VE Day 75 virtually.

Events and celebrations of the 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe were due to take place on the Yorkshire Coast and across the country on the bank holiday weekend of 8th - 10th May.

The organisers of the virtual Whitby VE75 day said:

"It’s such a shame that all VE75 events and celebrations due to take part on the special bank holiday weekend can no longer go ahead.

We can still mark the day/weekend in Whitby though. We could:

  • Put a flag in our windows
  • Decorate our houses Red, White & Blue
  • Have special meal or picnic in garden at home
  • Join together with your street safely in your own gardens observing social distancing rules for a sing along or have your individual picnic at same time
  • Send in any poems, recordings, video clips, music to the page to share over the bank holiday weekend"

If any organisations or local groups have any ideas or want to get involved virtually you can contact them here:
