Thank you for your patience during this time.
The Pomegranate Theatre is proud to present this satellite broadcast as part of its cinema programme.
On 8 May 1945, Prime Minister Winston Churchill made his Victory in Europe speech, in which he officially announced the unconditional surrender of Germany and the end of the Second World War in Europe.
On Friday 8 May 2020, a special May Bank Holiday to mark the anniversary, the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra plus special guests will unite the nation for an inspiring and patriotic evening.
Audiences will enjoy epic, stirring and emotional music from some of the country’s greatest composers – from Elgar’s Nimrod to Walton’s Spitfire Prelude and Fugue, Holst’s Planet Suite to Ron Goodwin’s Battle Of Britain Theme and many more. The special event will also include appearances on stage by Second World War Veterans.
