Remembrance Sunday
Sunday 12 November
Victoria Embankment

The traditional Remembrance Service will take place on Sunday 12 November at the city’s war memorial on Victoria Embankment. The ceremony will begin at 10.45am and include the two-minute silence and wreath laying. The Nottinghamshire Band of The Royal Engineers, accompanied by the Nottingham Hospitals’ Choir will provide music for the service.

The ceremony will begin with the traditional parade. From the west side closure (at Wilford Grove/Embankment), the parade comprising Armed Forces personnel, cadets and veterans will form up before marching down to the memorial. After the service, the parade will depart from the memorial and march down towards the east side closure (Embankment – Bunbury Street) saluting the Lord Lieutenant, before falling out inside the road closure at the Bunbury Street end.

Under the instruction of the Regimental Sergeant Major, wreaths will be laid by:

Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Sir John Peace
Lord Mayor of Nottingham, Councillor Carole McCulloch
Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council, Councillor John Ogle
High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire, Professor Veronica Pickering DL
Lieutenant Colonel Duncan Southall HQ Centre
HMS Sherwood, Commander Kathryn Jacques RNR
Mercian Regiment Captain Dean Davenport
RAF Syerston, Group Captain Barry E Dale LLM MA LLB CMgr FRAeS RAF
Col. David Sneath MA TD DL, County President Nottinghamshire RBL
Lilian Greenwoodd MP
Chief Fire Officer, Craig Parkin
Police and Crime Commissioner, Caroline Henry
Deputy Chief Constable, Steven Cooper

Wreaths will also be laid by veterans, community groups and faith representatives.

People wishing to pay their respects and observe the ceremony are very welcome. To help with this, there will be a large screen on Victoria Embankment for the public to be able to watch the ceremony. A large PA system will ensure people can also hear the service. This solution will help prevent crowding that can occur when people are struggling to see what is taking place.

As in previous years, there will be no activity at Old Market Square on Remembrance Sunday due to the war memorial being located at Victoria Embankment.

The road along the Embankment will be closed from the junction of Wilford Grove to the junction of Bunbury Street. 

Cars will not be allowed to park on the closed section of the Embankment. Cars can be parked in other areas, as normal.

There will be toilet facilities at the event.
