Remembering the past, looking to the future

Armistice Day this year will be a particularly poignant event for the whole country as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One and Luton Council will once again be supporting the Royal British Legion’s Service of Remembrance to honour people who have given their lives in past and present conflicts.

The Service of Remembrance will take place on Sunday 11th November from 10.40am at the war memorial in George Street and all Luton’s ex-service personnel are warmly invited to join the parade as we remember the centenary.

​In addition to encouraging all service veterans to attend the parade and Sunday morning service outside the memorial on Sunday 11th November, the council plan to collect memories and images from the relatives of those who fought in WW1. Some of these will be projected onto the Town Hall from 6pm during the evening, or the names read out.
