Please note: the date of the Day of Celebration has been changed from 8th May, which had been previously announced. The UK government has changed the May Day Bank Holiday for 2020 from 4th May to 8th May to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day. As a result, the Day of Celebration will now take place on 1st May.
