Books, audio stories, films, news reels and even learning to dance - it's all available at the click of a button this VE Day

Tameside Neighbourhood Librarian Stephanie Hogan reveals that there are a whole host of ways to get involved in VE Day celebrations - all from the safety of your home.

Included among the types of things you can enjoy is learning how to ‘Dance for Victory’ along with Born and Bred Dance Theatre and Tameside Culture - so be quick and learn those toe-tapping moves.

Plus, if you’re ever stuck for anything to do during the Covid lockdown - fear not - for the service has a wealth of reading material, audio books and more - all available online.

Plus Stephanie suggests tuning into the British Film Institute to help give you a real flavour of VE celebrations across the country - the institute has litterally hundreds of vignettes to share which give a true taste of just how the end of the war was welcomed.

Visit British Pathé News to gain a further sense of the war years.
