VE Day 2020

We at Tidworth Town Council were planning on holding a VE Day event, however due to COVID-19 restrictions this has been postponed. Along with Salisbury City Council‘s suggestion, why not hold a Stay at Home Street Party to mark the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War on Friday 8th May?

We are asking people to decorate their houses in red, white and blue and enjoy a socially distanced picnic in their front garden from 2pm until 4pm.

Salisbury City Council has teamed up with Spire FM who will be giving people the opportunity to give shout outs to you or a friend and will continue to play great music all afternoon.

At 3pm don’t forget to join in with the “Nations toast to the heroes of World War Two” to remember those brave men and women who fought for their country. People are encouraged to come together, stand and undertake the following toast:
‘To those who gave so much, we thank you’.

The Street Party will also give people the chance to get creative and create bunting and have fun colouring in Gilbert the Dragon in navy, army and air force uniforms; templates are available from our website:…

Don’t forget to let us know if your street is taking part and its name will be added to the website. Additionally, the City Council would be delighted to see your fantastic pictures of your street party, please upload them to the Facebook event page on the day – VE Day Stay at Home Street Party.

Please remember to follow social distancing guidelines at all times.
