SSAFA presents 

VE DAY 75

WITH THE DAILY MAIL

Exactly 75 years since Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s announcement of the end of the Second World War, 
the country will come together for an unforgettable night of commemoration and celebration, broadcast to cinemas nationwide live from a sold out Royal Albert Hall.
 
Host Katherine Jenkins will be joined on stage by the Military Wives Choir, the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and special guests. This inspiring and patriotic evening will also include a very special performance from Katherine.


Set to unite the nation, audiences will enjoy stirring and emotional music from some of Britain’s greatest composers - from Elgar’s Nimrod to Walton’s Spitfire Prelude & Fugue, Holst’s Planet Suite to Ron Goodwin’s Battle Of Britain Theme and many more. There will also be on stage appearances by Second World War Veterans and a live performance from D-Day Veteran Jim Radford who achieved a No.1 single in June 2019 with The Shores of Normandy.

This event is in support of SSAFA, the UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity. The Armed Forces charity offers support to those currently serving, regulars and Reservists, in the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army and Royal Air Force, Veterans and military families, as well as Veterans from the Merchant Navy.
