Hull will remember the millions of people who lost their lives in the First World War, and subsequent conflicts, this Sunday, on the 104th anniversary of the 1918 armistice.
At 10.30am on Sunday 13 November, a parade will leave from Pease Street and travel to the city centre Cenotaph before the annual service of remembrance takes place at 10.55am. A two minute silence will be held at 11am.
The Service of Remembrance will be conducted by Rev Dominic Black, Vicar of Hull Minster and the Bishop of Hull the Right Reverend Dr Eleanor Sanderson.
Following the service, the Lord Mayor and Admiral of the Humber, Councillor Christine Randall, will take the salute at the march past. The march past will involve members from a number of veterans associations alongside serving members of the armed forces, St John Ambulance and the blue light services the parade will be led by the Humberside Police band. Lord Mayor, Councillor Christine Randall said:
“This poignant service attracts thousands of people each year who want to pay their respects to the millions that have given their lives during conflict. “It’s an incredibly moving day and one I’m privileged to be part of.”
Alongside the service, from Friday 11 to Monday 14 November, visitors to the city centre will have the opportunity for a moment of reflection and remembrance in Queen Victoria Square as the buildings come to life with a poppy-themed lighting show.
