VE Day 75 With The Daily Mail, presented by SSAFA, the UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity, takes place on Friday 8 May.
On this May Bank Holiday, host Katherine Jenkins will be joined on stage by the Military Wives Choirs, the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and a host of special guests at a sold out Royal Albert Hall. The inspiring and patriotic evening will also include a very special performance by Katherine.
D-Day Veteran Jim Radford who achieved a number one single in June 2019 with ‘The Shores of Normandy’ will perform live and there will also be appearances by other Second World War Veterans.
To mark this historic moment in British history, almost 450 cinemas up and down the country will bring communities together exactly 75 years to the day since Prime Minister Winston Churchill famously announced the end of the Second World War in Europe.
Audiences will enjoy the Royal Albert Hall experience with stunning cinematic surround sound. The concert will feature stirring and emotional music from some of Britain’s greatest composers – from Elgar’s Nimrod and Pomp and Circumstance (‘Land of Hope and Glory’) to Ron Goodwin’s Battle Of Britain Theme, a Dame Vera Lynn classic and many more.
