The Southampton Remembrance Service and Parade will take place on Sunday 13 November
Military contingents and the City of Southampton (Albion) Band will leave Guildhall Square at 10.35am and head towards the Cenotaph in Watts Park, where the annual Remembrance Service will begin shortly before 11am.
The Lord Mayor of Southampton Councillor Jacqui Rayment, Deputy Lieutenant The Honourable Hugo Cubitt, and Superintendent Chief Inspector Marcus Kennedy will be in attendance along with other key members of Southampton City Council.
The Lord Mayor of Southampton, Councillor Jacqui Rayment said:
“Each year, Southampton joins the millions of people across Britain to remember those that gave their lives for our country. Please do join us at the Cenotaph as Southampton remembers and gives thanks to all serving troops, both past and present and their families.”
Archie Parsons from Southampton Royal British Legion said:
“On Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day, we reflect and give thanks to all those that played their part in bringing peace and those who helped to re-build our great city to what it is today."
Almost three thousand poppies have been generously knitted and donated by communities across Southampton this year to create a display at the Cenotaph for Remembrance. The poppies will be stored after the service and displayed at The Cenotaph for Remembrance, year after year.
For those wishing to attend the event, sustainable transport should be considered. Residents can plan their journeys using My Journey Southampton.
For residents unable to attend the Remembrance Parade and Service, a highlight video will be shared across Southampton City Council social media channels on the afternoon of Sunday 13 November 2022.
