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 10:30 am on John Dalton Street. The parade will march to the Cenotaph in St Peter’s Square where a service will be held at 11:00 am. This will be followed by a short march to Peter Street across St Peter’s Square.
There will also be a two-minute silence at 11:00 am. The start and finish of the two-minute silence will be signalled by the firing of a gun.
