Festival of Remembrance poppies 2018

Every year the Royal British Legion hosts the annual Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall, a commemorative event dedicated to all those that have served and sacrificed from Britain and the Commonwealth.  

To mark 100 years since our collective national Remembrance traditions came together for the first time, we will be remembering the military and civilian, the old and young, and the British and Commonwealth men and women who have fought wars, disasters and pandemics to protect and defend Britain.   

This year, we are working towards a fully realised Festival of Remembrance, which will be held on Saturday 13 November 2021 with performances at 2pm and 7pm.
