Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance 2016


Huw Edwards presents coverage of the annual event from the Royal Albert Hall in the presence of the Queen and other members of the royal family.

Martin Shaw , Michael Ball and Alfie Boe, Laura Mvula, Birdy and Alexander Armstrong perform alongside the Royal Air Force Squadronaires and the Band of HM Royal Marines.

Together they pay tribute to the victims of conflict, from the First World War to the present day, in a festival that also includes the traditional two-minute silence as thousands of poppy petals fall from the venue's ceiling.

It is a moving example of the great British genius for ceremony.

Royal British Legion's Festival of Remembrance

While we cannot yet post today's Festival of Remembrance in Royal Albert Hall, we are pleased to post last year's very moving ceremony in remembrance of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice, from World War I to the present day, for God, Queen and Country.
