Remembrance Sunday & Armistice Day

A national two-minute silence will be held at 11.00 am on Remembrance Sunday (8 November) to remember those who have been killed or injured in wars and conflicts worldwide. Her Majesty The Queen will lead a national service of remembrance at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, starting at 10.30. There will be a further national two-minute silence at 11.00 am on Armistice Day (11 November), marking the end of the First World War.

At Connaught Hall, the beginning and end of the two-minute silence on both Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day will be marked by brief soundings of the fire alarm. We encourage residents and visitors to participate in a few moments of quiet reflection.
