Celebrate VE Day 70 in Broomfield Park

It's the 70th anniversary of VE Day today, and with all this electioneering that's been going on, sadly it could easily pass most of us by. However, there is still plenty on offer for those looking to remember this historic anniversary, including a service of Remembrance at 3pm at the Cenotaph, special lights on the Houses of Parliament and St Paul's in central London, the lighting of a special beacon at the Tower of London at 9.32pm and scores more events.

Those looking for a celebratory atmosphere could do worse than heading to Broomfield Park in Enfield, where following two minutes of silence to remember the fallen, North London Brass will begin a concert to mark the end of World Wars with some joyful 1940s classics.
