More than 400 cinemas, from Inverness to Truro and from Belfast to Swansea, prepare to unite the nation with a concert of commemoration and celebration

VE Day 75 with the Daily Mail, presented by SSAFA, the UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity, takes place on 8 May. On this special May Bank Holiday, the Military Wives Choirs, the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and a host of special guests will take to the stage at a sold-out Royal Albert Hall for an inspiring and patriotic evening.

To mark this historic moment in British history, cinemas up and down the country will bring communities together exactly 75 years to the day since Prime Minister Winston Churchill famously announced the end of the Second World War in Europe. Audiences will enjoy the Royal Albert Hall experience with stunning cinematic surround sound. The concert will feature stirring and emotional music from some of Britain’s greatest composers – from Elgar’s Nimrod and Pomp and Circumstance (‘Land of Hope and Glory’) to Ron Goodwin’s Battle of Britain Theme, a Dame Vera Lynn classic and many more.
