The 70th anniversary celebrations of Victory in Europe Day will be marked with the opening of a new Second World War exhibition.

Sudbury Ephemera Archive will join Sudbury Town Council in the VE Day celebrations on Friday, May 8, from 1.30pm to 4pm, with the event also marking the official opening of the Sudbury Museum Trust’s Wheeler Exhibition room in Gaol Lane.

Its first exhibition will be about the Second World War. The room is named after local historian Tony Wheeler, who died in 2012.

Organisers hope as many people as possible will attend in period fancy dress and are also asking for volunteers to provide entertainment.
