Remembrance Service 2018

Remembrance 2018

21 September 2018

This year we mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Join us at East Court at 10am or the High Street at 11am on Sunday 11 November to mark this anniversary.

The 11am service will include the parade from King St, act of remembrance and singing of hymns and the national anthem accompanied by the Choir from St Swithun’s and the East Grinstead Concert Band. During the 2 minutes silence a big screen stationed on the market square will show the earlier lighting of the East Court beacon as part of the National Battles Over Beacon lighting.

The East Grinstead Concert Band will form up around the jubilee fountain and the parade will form in the road by the war memorial. After the service the band and parade will move off to Chequer Mead Car park where they will disperse.

If you are not joining us, please be aware that the High St will be closed to traffic from 10:15am and will not reopen until the parade has cleared the high st. All will be open by 12pm.
