To mark the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, East Grinstead will recreate the town’s original 1945 Victory in Europe (VE) Day street party on 10 May.

The High Street will be closed to traffic between 1.30 and 10.30pm to make way for performances from vintage-inspired trio The Spinettes, The ConChord Big Band and children’s entertainer Adam the Magic Music Man between 4pm to 9pm.

Local vintage boutique Wear it Again Sam will also be running a 1940s-themed best-dressed competition with a £20 voucher for the best-dressed couple and a £10 voucher for a solo star. To enter just pop into the shop at 59A High Street and have your snap taken by owner Fiona.
