Birmingham’s annual Remembrance Sunday service will look very different this year, due to the ongoing impact of the pandemic.
While there will be no public event in the city centre, people looking to remember the fallen will be able to watch a live-streamed Service of Remembrance from Birmingham Cathedral (St Philip’s) on 8 November at 10.45am.
The service, for a small group of invited guests, will be significantly scaled back with far fewer official participants to ensure it can take place safely.
This means there will be no service or military parade on Colmore Row, so instead people are being urged to carry out their own acts of remembrance at home or school – and to share online using hashtag #BhamRemembers.
Further details of the service and how people can watch the live stream will be announced nearer the time.
