Ahead of next week’s VE Day celebrations on 8th May, The National Museum of the Royal Navy, the National Army Museum and the Royal Air Force Museum are joining forces to host a free online festival from 7th – 9th May bringing to life the stories of those who helped deliver Victory in Europe.

The three-day programme is fully accessible from home. Highlights include:
• Vying for Victory debate chaired by James Holland – three lead historians from each museum delve into the myths to reveal the lesser known stories of how the Second World War was won, followed by a live Q&A
• Live talks with historians James Holland and Jonathan Fennell
• Virtual 1940s swing dance class followed by a sing-along concert at home inspiring a VE party spirit for the nation
• Voices from the three Armed Forces – re-enactors share stories from the Fighting Front and the Home Front
Look out for more VE Day activities next week!
