Remembrance Sunday Remembrance Sunday

Over 400 people are expected to join Worcester's Remembrance Sunday parade which will take place on Sunday 13 November. The parade will march to the Cathedral for the annual Service of Remembrance.

This year, around 50 veterans and 70 serving officers with the Queen's Royal Hussars, will be joining the parade through the city streets. The Queen's Royal Hussars were granted Freedom of the City of Worcester in 2014.

The parade will gather in Cornmarket car park at 9am and will begin its march at 9.15am, moving off via Mealcheapen Street, St Swithun's Street and High Street to the Cathedral.

At 9.40am, the civic procession will leave the Guildhall to walk to the Cathedral for the service.

The service will start at 10am and finish at 10.40am, when attendees will then make their way to the wreath laying ceremony at the war memorial outside the Cathedral.

At 11am, there will be a two minute silence and wreaths will be laid.

The ceremony will end at around 11.20am with the civic procession making its way back to the Guildhall ready to take the salute, and the parade marching back.

Among those taking part in the parade will be representatives from 214 Battery Royal Artillery and from Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters, The Royal British Legion, Worcester Veterans Breakfast Club, sea cadets, the Air Training Corps, police cadets, Hereford and Worcester ACF, St John Ambulance Brigade and local Scouts and Guides.

Mayor of Worcester, Councillor Adrian Gregson said: "It is so important that we take time to remember all those who have fallen in conflict in order that we might have freedom. Worcester residents of all ages will be most welcome at this important ceremony."

Cornmarket car park will be closed to the public from midnight on Saturday November 12. There will also be some road closures to allow the parade to go ahead.
