Festival of Remembrance 2014

8 November 2014

Poppies falling at the Festival of RemembranceThis annual Festival, held at the Royal Albert Hall, commemorates and honours all those who have lost their lives in conflicts, and is both a moving and enjoyable evening hosted by The Royal British Legion.

Tickets for this year's performance are sold out but please join us by watching the BBC1 broadcast from 9.10pm or highlights on BBC Radio 2 from 8.00pm.

This year's festival theme is A Century of Service and sacrifice and acknowledges the centenary of the start of the First World War, 70 years since the Normandy landings and the withdrawal from Afghanistan this year. 

The Queen's Colour Squadron and the Band of HM Royal Marines will perform along with Joss Stone and Jeff Beck, Jim Radford and Sol3 Mio with a special appearance from War Horse.

Guests: On the day there will be strict security so we recommend you arrive early, and refreshments will be available prior to both performances at the restaurants at the Royal Albert Hall. For more information, click here for a fact sheet.

A special DVD of the Festival will be available in January from the Legion's Poppy Shop - www.poppyshop.org.uk or call +44 (0) 300 1239 110.

The Festival is always held the day before Remembrance Sunday.
