Remembrance Day in Manchester

Held on the second Sunday in November, Remembrance Day in Manchester is an opportunity for communities to come together and show their respect to those who lost their lives in the First World War, and the conflicts that followed.

During November, many members of the community wear a remembrance poppy to show their respect and hope for a peaceful world. And on Remembrance Sunday many parades and processions take place across Manchester.

The Manchester City Centre Remembrance Day procession will start at 10:25 am on John Dalton Street. The parade will march to the Cenotaph in St Peter’s Square before heading to Central Library. There will also be a two minute silence at 11:00 am.
