Beacons of Light

The Christchurch Branch of The Royal British Legion and local armed forces associations are working with Christchurch Borough Council, the Priory and other community organisations to commemorate the life and death of those who served in the First World War,

The event is called “Battle’s over – a tribute to the nation” and will take place on Remembrance Sunday, the 11 November 2018 starting at 6.45pm at the Bandstand on Christchurch Quay.

Residents will arrive to candle lit paths on Christchurch Quay leading to the Bandstand, where there will also be a stage and marquee for the choirs and bands.

The programme will be convened by the Reverend Charles Stewart.

The first half will be sombre and reflect the preparation for war and the experience of being at war and end with the Act of Remembrance.

The second half will focus more on the fact that the war came to an end and we now live in relatively peaceful times.

Highcliffe Charity Players and Christchurch Candle Light Singers will join the Royal British Legion and Lighthouse Bands to engage those present with a wide repertoire of music from the period reflecting the newness of life and hope at the end of the War.
