Our VE Day 75th anniversary music video

Published 3rd May 2020

Friday 8th May 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the ending of the Second World War in Europe - VE Day ('Victory in Europe' Day).

Complete victory - with the ending of the war in the Pacific - was still another three months away (VJ Day) - but in May 1945, after nearly six years of war, celebrating Victory in Europe was cause enough.

Inspire Music have created We'll Meet Again, a special musical collage in celebration of the 75th anniversary celebrations.

You can watch the video below or on YouTube: https://youtu.be/-UGqbJhGvYA

We do hope you enjoy it.
