On Sunday 12th November 2017, thousands of people from across Portsmouth will stand in Guildhall Square to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and servicewomen in the two World Wars, and later conflicts.
The Sunday service will start at 10:30am on the Portsmouth Guildhall steps, before proceeding into the square and leading round the corner to the memorial cenotaph.
Local dignitaries will be in attendance, including Lord Mayor of Portsmouth Ken Ellcome. They’ll be joined by a representative of the Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire to lead the Civic Delegation.
Serving military personnel and members of ex-service groups will parade onto the square at 10:50am, led by the Royal Marines Band.
The parade will also include representatives from local Cadet Corps and Reservists.
Big Screen Portsmouth will broadcast the commemorative service, courtesy of students from the University of Portsmouth’s Television and Broadcasting BSc course, via The Creative and Cultural Industries TV channel (CCI TV).
