The Annual Service of Remembrance at Chester Cathedral will take place on Sunday 12 November.
A Military Parade will step off from Bridge Street at 9.30am and march to the Cathedral. The Service of Remembrance will take place inside Chester Cathedral at 10.15am followed by the Act of Remembrance outside at 10.55am.
Members of the public are welcome to attend the service and tickets for the inside service can be booked via Chester Cathedral’s online booking service. Viewing for the Act of Remembrance will be from St Werburgh Street’s footpaths and the surrounding area.
Cllr Sheila Little, Lord Mayor of Chester, said, “Remembrance Sunday is an important day in Chester’s calendar. It is an opportunity to come together to pay our respects to all those who have served. We look forward to welcoming members of the public to join us.
“We will also be commemorating Armistice Day on Saturday 11 November at 10.45am in the Chester Cathedral Garden and I would also welcome people to attend this service.”
The short service takes place at the Cathedral War Memorial led by a representative from the Cathedral. This will be followed by the playing of the last post and a two-minute silence.
Remembrance Sunday honours everyone who served to safeguard our democratic freedoms and way of life.
Remembrance Sunday is the opportunity for all faiths, non-faiths, cultures and backgrounds to come together to remember the services and sacrifices of Armed Forces communities.
