A night to remember as borough marks World War One anniversary

04 October 2018

Rochdale Festival of Remembrance.

A poignant Festival of Remembrance will be held next month to mark 100 years since the end of World War One.

People will come together at Rochdale Town Hall on Friday, 2 November 2018 for a special evening to honour those who served and sacrificed.

A packed programme will include military bands, an act of remembrance, historic war stories and much more.

The event will be the first of many ceremonies held across the borough, as communities come together to reflect and remember the fallen.

Thousands of men and women from towns and villages across the borough lost their lives during the Great War.

'This will be a really special evening as we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, fighting to protect our freedoms, liberty and values'

Special guests at the event will include the Mayor of Rochdale, Councillor Mohammed Zaman, local councillors and dignitaries from across the armed forces community.

Councillor Janet Emsley, Cabinet Member for the Armed Forces, said: "This will be a really special evening as we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, fighting to protect our freedoms, liberty and values. The event is open to all and I would urge people to snap up tickets early to avoid disappointment. It is sure to be a moving occasion as the borough pays its respects. We will remember them."

Tickets for the Festival of Remembrance, which starts at 7pm on Friday, 2 November 2018, are priced just £20, including a pie and pea supper.
