A Victorious Saturday

24 April 2015

A victorious Saturday is being planned at BCLM for 9 May to join in nationwide celebrations to mark the 70th anniversary of VE Day.

Costumed demonstrators will perform a home-guard drill and VE inspired speeches, and we will celebrate as the whole of Europe once did in May 1945, with laughter, dancing and traditional street celebrations in our canalside village.

Living history will help recreate the atmosphere of the day with visitors able to meet ‘Winston Churchill’ and listen to his electrifying ‘Victory Speech’. The US First Infantry will also be in their tented camp with a display of historic military vehicles and equipment.

Join us and come together to celebrate the ‘unbending resolve of the British nation’.
