Remembrance Day Service – 10 November 2018
Leicester Market is pleased to announce that it will once again host a commemorative event to mark Remembrance Sunday, taking place in Market Square on Saturday 10 November.
The Market will come to a standstill as shoppers and traders pay their respects to servicemen and women, past and present, who continue to serve and protect the country.
On Saturday 10th November, a service of remembrance will take place from 10.50am, with this year’s service marking the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
In attendance will be the Deputy Lord Mayor of Leicester, Annette Byrne, whilst the service will be conducted by the Reverend Canon Karen Rooms.
As always, at 11:00am a bugler will sound ‘The Last Post’ to mark the beginning of two minutes of silence.
All members of the public are invited to join us at Leicester Market for the service, before laying flowers at Town Hall Square’s War Memorial.
The Traders’ Association is proud to donate flowers to lay at the Memorial as a mark of respect for the servicemen and women that have served.
