See pictures and video clips from the day >>

This May, The People's Palace in Glasgow will go back in time to 1945. The War in Europe has just been won and it's time to put on your dancing shoes and join in the celebration.

Learn how to Dance to big band classics from That Swing Sensation with the help of Fly Right Dance Company.

Discover Rationing as the wartime shopping experience is brought to life but watch out for Big Billy and Sanshoe Stef.

If you are not worn out by all of the dancing you can have a go at some traditional games in our back court or make your own flags to take the celebration home.
