VE Day Sing for Victory

Music was an important part of the VE Day celebrations and playing a musical instrument was popular at the time.

We have had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing people who attended VE Day celebrations in 1945. Robin was a young man at the time and he sat in the back of a jeep playing a trumpet as the jeep was driven around Belfast City Hall. Another man, Harry, marched around Portglenone playing his accordion until 3 O'clock in the morning!

We have put together a VE Day Sing for Victory sing-along for kids and accompanying songbook to commemorate VE Day.
