Following on from the success of last year, we bring you the third Festival of Remembrance to be held in the Weymouth Pavilion. The aim of the Festival of Remembrance is to commemorate all those who have lost their lives in conflicts; we aim to do that with entertainment and reflection.
The theme for this year’s Festival is “Thank You” , the Legion’s Director General, Charles Byrne, said: “The end of the First World War centenary is a chance for each of us to say thank you in our own ways and in our own words not only to those who gave their lives, but those who returned, those who worked in the factories and on the land, and those who pioneered advances in medicine, technology and the arts in response to the experience of the war”.
“Whilst the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended the fighting 100 years ago marks a poignant time of reflection, it is also a time to look forward to the future with the promise to make it a better place. Everyone living in Britain today has a reason to say ‘Thank You’ to this special generation.”
Details of those appearing will be updated here but we have already confirmed the Decadettes, Bournemouth Youth Marching band and “Let’s Dance”.
Your support is appreciated and essential to allow our work to continue and enforce the true meaning of Remembrance, which is:
“To the memory of the fallen and the future of the living.”
