Remembrance commemorations in Norwich

Published on Tuesday, 17th October 2023

The city will come together on Sunday 12 November, to honour those who have made sacrifices in times of conflict past and present.

The commemorations will begin at 10am with the assembling of current and ex service personnel, civic dignitaries, and civilians in front of Norwich War Memorial.

Reverend Canon Edward Carter, of St Peter Mancroft, will lead a service.

Then there'll be a laying of wreaths at Norwich War Memorial and prayers, followed by The Last Post (the traditional final salute to the fallen) to mark the start of a two-minute silence at 11am.
After a blessing, the parade will march off at around 11:05am, from St Peters Street, down Gaol Hill, along London Street, Opie Street, Castle Meadow, Agriculture Hall Plain, Upper King Street, Tombland to Norwich Cathedral.

Following a salute on Cathedral Close, everyone is invited to enter the cathedral for a service from 11:40am.

All are welcome to attend, as well as lay any wreaths or tributes after the service.
