Remembrance Sunday in Charnwood

Remembrance Sunday is on Sunday November 10 and there will be a series of services, parades and commemorations across the borough to mark this important day.

The borough’s main event is in Loughborough town centre where around 5,000 people will join the Remembrance Sunday Service and parade around the town.

The parade, organised by the Royal British Legion, will start at 10.20am from the Market Place and includes serving and ex-service personnel from more than 25 local uniformed organisations.

The Remembrance Service will be held at the Carillon Tower; Queen’s Park, at 10.45am led by Reverend Wendy Dalrymple, Chaplain, Royal British Legion, Loughborough Branch. Please note that the weather could be temperamental, and the grounds are likely to be wet. Appropriate footwear is advised.

In order to prevent a build-up people trying to access Queens Park through the New Street gates following the parade, the gates will be closed at 10.30am to the general public to enable the Civic Party and Community wreath layers to process into the park. It is advisable for the public to access the park through other gates on Granby Street, or Browns Lane.

Details of the various road closures for Remembrance Sunday, Loughborough Fair and other events are available on the road closures and restrictions for major events in Loughborough webpage.
