Remembrance Day Events in Coventry

 The 11th of November marks Armistice Day, the end of World War One. This year will see the city of Coventry bursting with events, commemorations and services across the weekend in remembrance of those who lot their lives.

Today, West Orchards Shopping Center will hold its annual Poppy Drop. Creating a sea of red poppies, thousands will fall from the top of the center. A short service of remembrance will also take place today on floor three of the complex after the poppy drop has finished. The public is also encouraged to attend a service held at Coventry Cathedral, which will start at 12am, held by John Witcombe.

Hundreds of people will join together on Sunday the 12th of November at the War Memorial Park, led by the Lord Bishop of Coventry and The Right Reverend Dr Christopher Cocksworth. Starting at 10.50 am, the highly anticipated service will see the likes of Coventry Lords Mayor and Councillor Tony Skipper in attendance who will both lay wreaths and take the salute.
