We will all celebrate 100 years since the end of the First World War on November 11. A series of events dedicated will be held over the weekend to commemorate the occasion across the Bath and North East Somerset region.
The Bath and North East Somerset Council (B&NES) is producing a special free publication to honour Remembrance Sunday with iconic photos and archive articles. They will be available in libraries and the One Stop shop on Manvers Street. The limited edition publication will explore past celebrations and events over the last four years to mark the historic date.
The B&NES, Royal British Legion, The Mayor, Bath Abbey, and The Charter Trustees of the City of Bath, collectively commented: “We have all been proud to mark the Centenary of the First World War over the last four years. We invite residents to take part in this special Remembrance Sunday, by attending one of the many ceremonies and services held in local communities.”
On Sunday, November 4, the Royal British Legion is holding a Dedication of the Field of Remembrance. The next week on Sunday, November 11, there will be several ceremonies and services in Bath, wider Bath, and North East Somerset to celebrate Remembrance Sunday.
Presently, there is an ongoing bid to get a “Tommy” Statue in Bath before Armistice Day.
