Remembrance Day Beacon

11th November 2018
(7pm)

At 7pm on Sunday 11 November 2018, a "WW1 beacon of light" will be lit on the WW1 poppy field on The Chevin.

In commemoration and remembrance of the end of the war and the many millions who were killed or came home dreadfully wounded, 1000 Beacons of Light will be lit at 7pm on 11th November 2018 throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories - a century after the guns fell silent.

The beacon will also commemorate the huge army of men and women on the home front who, often in dangerous and exhausting conditions, underpinned the war effort - keeping the wheels of industry turning, bringing the harvests home to ensure the nation did not starve.

The Beacons will symbolise the 'light of hope' that emerged from the darkness of war.

Note - there will not be a Beacon Lighting Ceremony and the public are not allowed onto the WW1 poppy field

Organiser: Belper Town Council
