Festival of Remembrance
Each year on 11 November, we remember the men and women who gave their lives in the two World Wars and subsequent conflicts.
During the First World War, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare.
First held in 1927, the annual Festival of Remembrance honours those who risked their lives for their country. The Royal British Legion welcomes members of the Royal family, Government and the public to join in the service and two-minute silence. The event is shared by millions watching on television and listening on radio worldwide.
When: 7 November, 2pm
Where: Royal Albert Hall
