The People’s Celebration
An evening of memories and music to honour and celebrate the Second World War generation.
To mark the 75th anniversary of VE day, in these unprecedented times, the BBC and the Royal British Legion honour and celebrate the Second World War generation with an evening of memories and music.
Featuring some of those who remember this historic day, and some of Britain’s favourite performers, including Katherine Jenkins, Adrian Lester, Anton Du Beke, Beverley Knight, Helen George, Sharon D Clarke, Shane Richie and Emma Barton, entertaining us with popular songs of the era.
In a fitting finale at 9pm, the nation is asked to unite for a very special rendition of We’ll Meet Again as a gesture of thanks to our veterans and in memory of our loved ones.
