VE Day Celebrations in Ruthin

This year marks the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe, marking the end of WW2 in Europe.

To commemorate this historic event, Ruthin Gaol is having a special celebration and asking people to share their memories.

During 1946, Ruthin hosted a programme of special celebratory events and to recreate this we would love to hear stories of peoples’ recollections of those Victory celebrations. Do you or your family have memories, artefacts or photos of relating to VE day? If you do please contact or 01824 706868 / 708259

Ruthin Gaol was used as a munitions factory from 1942 until the end of the war and as such had a special part to play in the war effort and the community of Ruthin. To mark this important time in history, we are holding a special VE Day event on Wednesday 27th May 2020. Come and see what life was like in wartime Ruthin, hear stories of land girls, the home front and the munitions workers here at the Gaol.
