Manchester to remember the fallen with Remembrance Sunday ceremony and parade to take place on 13 November 2022

Manchester will fall silent on Sunday 13 November 2022 as the city remembers the fallen during the annual Remembrance Sunday commemorations.

The Remembrance Sunday Parade  will set off  at 10:25am from  John Dalton Street. The Parade will march from John Dalton Street to the Cenotaph in St. Peter's Square. 

Civic dignitaries, servicemen and women, service and ex-service organisations, faith leaders, emergency services and other uniformed organisations will be invited to pay their respects at the Cenotaph in St. Peter’s Square along with members of the public 

At 11am there will be a two-minute silence. The start and finish of the traditional silence will be marked by the firing of a 105mm gun.   

Wreaths will then be laid on the Cenotaph by the Lord-Lieutenant of Greater Manchester, the Lord Mayor of Manchester, the Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, Reserve Forces represented by the 103rd (Lancashire Artillery Volunteers) Regiment Royal Artillery, The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment, 207 (Manchester) Field Hospital (Volunteers), Royal British Legion on behalf of ex-service men and women, Manchester Consular Association on behalf of Commonwealth Allies, Greater Manchester Police, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service and young faith representatives.   

At the end of the service, the Parade will proceed to Central Library for the March Past. The National Anthem will be played at the end of the March Past.   

The event will be live streamed on Facebook. 

After the Parade has left the Cenotaph, the crowd control barriers will be removed, and members of the public will have an opportunity to place their tributes around the memorial.   

We would like to invite veterans who would wish to take part to email Manchester City Council:  civicevents@manchester.gov.uk  

The Lord Mayor of Manchester, Councillor Donna Ludford, said:   

 

“ Remembrance Sunday gives us an opportunity to reflect on past and present conflicts. It also gives us all a chance to express our respects and think of those who have fought for our country.  

“It will be an honour to meet with members of the armed services, faith leaders and the people of Manchester on Sunday and, together, we can mark this solemn day.”  

 

ENDS
