Remembrance Services in Nottingham

Victoria Embankment

Following the Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving earlier today, another important event to mark the Centenary of the end of the First World War takes place at the Victoria Embankment tonight. 

Battle's Over - A Nation's Tribute 

From 6.30pm on Sunday 11 November

To conclude a day of national commemorations on Armistice Day, beacons will be lit in cities, towns and villages the length and breadth of the UK and beyond. Nottingham’s beacon will be placed in front of the imposing 1927 war memorial.

This family-friendly event will include sound and lightscapes, poetry and music in a moving tribute to Nottingham and Nottinghamshire’s 14,000 men and women who lost their lives.

The Nottingham beacon will be lit at 7pm, following which church bells will ring out as they did on this night, 100 years ago.
