Victory is Here! VE Day in Wiltshire

3rd January 2020, 11:21am | By David | Event Date : 20200506

VE Day and the aftermath of the Second World War marked the beginning of a huge period of change across the country, from ‘slum’ clearances and ambitious building programmes to the beginnings of the permissive society and sweeping social change. This talk will introduce you to how these issues affected Wiltshire and its residents.

£4, booking advisable on 01249 705500 or archives@wiltshire.gov.uk
