Bolton to mark Remembrance Day 2013 with concerts, services and parades
6:00am Saturday 2nd November 2013 in Bolton
BOLTON will mark the sacrifice of its war heroes with a series of events this Remembrance Day.
Concerts, services and parades will be held in the town — and everyone is encouraged to join in.
Cllr Colin Shaw, Mayor of Bolton, said: “I am very proud to be Mayor at this important time of the year when our town joins together to remember those who have paid the ultimate price — and all those affected physically and emotionally by conflicts around the world.
“I would like to extend an invitation to all the citizens of the borough to join me for these important events.”
This year’s Remembrance Sunday Service and March Past takes place on November 10, in Victoria Square, starting at 10.56am.
Maroons will be fired to mark the beginning and end of the two-minutes’ silence commencing at 11am.
The council will also mark Armistice Day on Monday, November 11, with a service in Victoria Square, which will also include the firing of maroons from the Town Hall roof.
People who would like to be present for either event are urged to be there by 10.40am on both days. The ever-popular Remembrance Concert takes place on November 9 at 7pm in The Albert Halls, in Bolton town centre.
There are still tickets available, at £7.50 each.
This concert gives residents the opportunity to support local service and cadet organisations and join together for an evening of remembrance and song.
