Uckfield will next year mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day – the end of World War Two in Europe.
The town council is setting up a working group to arrange a commemorative event(s).
VE Day 75 falls on a Friday and will be a Bank Holiday.
The government has put back by four days the early May bank holiday to coincide with the commemorations.
Nationally, a number of events are planned over the three-day holiday weekend.
They include many pubs inviting customers to join the nation’s toast to the heroes of the war at 3pm on May 8 – the time in 1945 that Winston Churchill officially announced the end of the war in Europe.
There will also be a peal of bells from churches and in the evening parties.
In recent years, Uckfield has marked a number of significant events at the Victoria Pleasure Ground, including the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One – Flames of Remembrance
World War Two finally ended on August 15, 1945, when the Japanese surrendered.
