This event has been postponed due to the Coronavirus crisis.

VE weekend would have returned to the Royal Gunpowder Mills on May 8th-10th as one of our flagship events, inviting visitors to join in Victory in Europe Day military and civilian celebrations and remembrance.

On its 75th anniversary, the Gunpowder Mills had hoped to be celebrating in style over three days, with Military re-enactors from across the UK and Europe, a VE 1940's street party, theatre performances  and special exhibitions incuding period photographs and radio technology. 

That was the world that was.  Now we are now fighting a cruel virus bringing devastating consequences for lives and loved ones.            

Wherever you are this VE Day, please stay safe.

Lockdown's discomforts are a small price to pay for combatting the virus.

We looking forward to welcoming you back in a safer world. 

Booking for this event has now closed.
