Celebrating the 75th anniversary of VE Day

This May, join us at one of our events or hold a street party of your own to mark 75 years since Victory in Europe.

VE Day 75 events

The council is organising a programme of events across the borough, including a street party at Manor Farm on Friday 8 May. The day will feature live jazz, swing dancing, food stalls, crafts and a temporary display illustrating how Hillingdon celebrated VE Day 75 years ago. Families can learn more about what it was like to live in Hillingdon during wartime.

Hold a VE Day 75 street party

Residents wanting to organise a street party to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day 75 on Friday 8 May can now apply for free road closures, public notices, traffic management services and public liability insurance. 

Road closures will be considered for cul-de-sacs, crescents, quiet roads that are not 'through roads' and roads not on bus routes, as these will not generally impact on traffic movement.

If you live on a major road, we may still be able to suggest alternative locations, such as nearby parks or open spaces. Although this is only an option where residents live on a road that cannot be closed. 

Please note that for public liability insurance, any excess will be the responsibility of the organiser should a claim be made. 

The deadline for applications is Friday 3 April.

For further information or any questions you may have, email streetparties@hillingdon.gov.uk or call 01895 556640.
