VE Day Stories

Where were you when the lights went on again! What were you (or your parents? Or your grandparents?) doing on May 8th 1945? As part of the 75th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe, Greenham Common Control Tower is planning to devise an entertainment based around local people’s memories of VE Day. The evening will be put together by writer and director Andy Kempe, Emeritus Professor of Drama, University of Reading. The idea is to present a collage of memories along with songs from the period as part of an exhibition and programme of special events to be held at the tower in May.

If you have a memory of or story to tell about VE Day please send it to andyk@greenhamtower.org.uk
