Audio Visual Hire for VE Day 2020 Events

VE Day 2020 - Audio Visual equipment Hire from Communic8

2020 is the start of a new decade and whilst for many, January is a time to start new healthy eating regimes. 2020 is a big year as it's the 75th year of peace in Europe - VE Day.

Due to the Cornavirus, the VE Day 75 Official website has said they are urging organises to postpone VE Day event plans for 2020. They are asking all those who have made plans to move to the rescheduled date of 15th - 16th August 2020

Bruno Peek, Pagentmaster of the VE Day group said;-

I am afraid that the terrible Coronavirus emergency and consequent Government guidance means that we must advise participants to cancel or postpone the majority of the VE Day 75 community celebrations due to take place on the bank holiday weekend of 8th – 10th May. It is right and proper that people should be kept safe and healthy.
