What's On

The Bristol Festival of Remembrance

Bristol Cathedral are honoured to be working with the Royal British Legion to host Bristol's Festival of Remebrance, the centre piece of the south-west's commemorations on the eve of Armistice 2018. The concert will bring together musical talent from across the region with orchestral pieces, choral works, readings and a performance by local children.

This year the world will mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.  Join The Royal British Legion for a special Festival of Remembrance, bringing together musical talent from across the region presenting a poignant tribute from a variety of performers including local children in the first half.  The second part of the evening will crescendo with a performance of Karl Jenkins’ The Peacemakers by the 100 Members of Lucis and Noctis Choirs and the Orchestra directed by Francis Faux. The piece is dedicated to all those who have lost their lives during armed conflict.  Our Guest Speaker for the evening will be the distinguished humanitarian and author, Terry Waite CBE.

Dignitaries, Military Personnel, Standard Bearers and Veterans will join members of the public for this centre-piece of the South West’s commemorations, raising money for The Poppy Appeal which supports Members of the Armed Forces, Veterans and their beneficiaries.


Tickets are being sold in different areas of the cathedral. Precise seats are unallocated and are available on a first come, first served basis.
