Remembrance Ceremony
  • Portland Square Memorial

Save event

On Friday 9 November the University will be holding a short ceremony (including the two minute silence) to mark Remembrance Sunday and to remember those who were killed in both world wars and in other conflicts.

This year is particularly significant as Remembrance Day (11:00 on the 11th day of the 11th month) is the centenary of the day that World War One ended.

The Portland Square sculpture, Hope, commemorates the 76 people who were killed in April 1941 when a high explosive bomb hit the Portland Square air raid shelter.

The remembrance ceremony, led by Rev David Evans, University Coordinating Chaplain, starts at 10:50 and will end by 11:10 with a two minute silence at 11:00.

All are welcome to join us at this event on the University campus.
