VE Day and Bank Holiday

Today is Victory in Europe Day and a public holiday in the UK.

This VE day commemorates the 75th anniversary of defeating Germany's aspiration for world dominance, for the second time in the same century.

On 8th May 1945, Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced on the radio that the second war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany's surrender the day before.

A three day event was planned from 8th to 10th of May with pageantry and regalia, but has sadly been cancelled due to Coronavirus.

There will be 2 minutes silence for the fallen at 11am UK, and Her Majesty The Queen will address the nation at 9pm UK.

We hope you will celebrate VE day with us in Second Life.  Bailey has a special event planned tonight at Lala's with patriotic music and pomp for us all to enjoy.
