Festival of Remembrance 2015

Poppies falling at the Festival of Remembrance

This 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.

There is a matinee (2.00pm) and an evening performance (7.00pm) - both are exactly the same except that the Royal Family attend only the evening performance.

Members should contact their Branch Secretary about obtaining tickets. More details are available on the fact sheet (see link below).

A limited number of tickets for members of the general public for the matinee performance may be available from 9.00am on 1 September by phone, online, in person or by post. To book, please call the Royal Albert Hall Box Office on 020 7589 8212 or to book online visit www.royalalberthall.com.

Tickets for the evening performance are not publicly available.

Further information is available in the Festival of Remembrance Special Circular (pdf).

The Festival of Remembrance is broadcast on BBC radio and television. Check local guides for details. 

A special DVD of the Festival will be available early in Jan/Feb following the performance from the Legion's Poppy Shop. The 2014 Festival of Remembrance DVD is available here, or call +44 (0) 300 1239 110.
