REMEMBRANCE DAY 2019: Events, parades and services in Lancashire including Preston, Chorley, Leyland, Garstang, Lancaster, Morecambe, Blackpool

As Lancashire pauses to remember those who lost their lives fighting for their country we have rounded up events across the county.

Events, services and parades are taking place on Remembrance Sunday - November 10 - and also on Remembrance (also known as Armistice) Day itself on November 11.

Other events in the preceding days also mentioned.

Remembrance Sunday is held in the United Kingdom as a day to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts.

It is held on the second Sunday in November and a minute silence is traditionally held at 11am.

November 11 marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918.

If you have an event we have missed, please get in touch before November 8, by emailing [email protected]
