Victory 'V' to rise high above St Paul's to mark 70th anniversary of the end of War in Europe

Two powerful beams of light will rise high into the air above St Paul's as they did 70 years ago when the guns of War fell silent in Europe.

To mark the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day, the lights will recreate the famous V shape as on 8 May 1945. 

For three nights from Friday 8 - Sunday 10 May the lights will project from the south side of the Cathedral. 

The Bell Ringers at St Paul’s will also mark the occasion by ringing a quarter peal of 1270 changes of Stedman Cinques on Saturday 9 May beginning at 11am.
