How to take part in Remembrance

Acts of Remembrance come in many forms and there are lots of different ways to get involved.

RBL is not prescriptive in how people choose to remember. 

What matters is that they do, whether by wearing a poppy in November, observing a two-minute silence, visiting the Remembrance Glade, holding a service in a church, temple, synagogue, mosque or village hall, or by creating a completely original form

As we mark 100 years since the nation’s collective Remembrance traditions were first bought together; the poppy, two-minute silence, Armistice Day, the service for the Unknown Warrior, and the march-past at the Cenotaph, we are reflecting on the evolution of our Remembrance traditions and what the next 100 years of Remembrance could look like by examining how, who, and why we remember.
