VE VJ Day on Poole Quay, Sunday, 15th August as part of Festival Coast Live Celebrations

Poole played a key role during the World War II, the flying boats connecting us to the world, Dunkirk small boats, raiding parties, D-Day trials and being one of the largest embarkation points for D-Day itself. The Society for Poole is organising the event on the Quay which commemorates the 75+1 anniversary of the end of the war and depicts some of the stories of the town.

The organisers are expecting for 5,000 people to attend and with good weather planned this may actually happen. See image below for more information.
