The Festival of Remembrance from Royal Albert Hall

The United Kingdom remembers fallen heroes of the British Armed Services during a Week of Remembrance each November.  It culminates in Remembrance Sunday, which is always the Sunday closest to 11 November.  A particularly beautiful and moving Festival of Remembrance, sponsored by the Royal British Legion, is held in Royal Albert Hall on the Saturday before Remembrance Sunday.  It includes hymns, military tributes, poetry and prayers in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen. The Festival concludes with the act of Remembrance when thousands of poppies are dropped representing the lives lost not only in the two great World Wars, but also in more recent conflicts.

The following video includes highlights of last year's Festival of Remembrance.
