VE Day celebrations in Salford - 8 to 10 May 2020

The first Bank Holiday of the year has been changed! For only the second time in history, a Monday Bank Holiday will be moved to a Friday. It is now Friday 8 May.

This change is because 8 May marks the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day.

To uphold traditions, this day will be marked as a celebration day for the whole country.

To help local residents and community groups commemorate VE Day, Salford City Council and Urban Vision are offering free road closures to those who wish to hold their own street parties, like the ones held in 1945 to celebrate the end of World War Two.

If you'd like to hold a street party from 8 to 10 May 2020, you will need to apply for a road closure as soon as possible.

The deadline to apply is Tuesday 31 March.
