3rd - 11th November

Truro Cathedral | Armistice Centenary

In special commemoration of Remembrance Day 2018, the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, Truro Cathedral will once again drop thousands of paper poppies from the central tower of the cathedral during the 10:30am service on Sunday 11th November 2018 - each one remembering lives lost during the war.

A number of events will take place at Truro Cathedral during the Remembrance period including:

Saturday November 10th

  • 7.30pm - Three Spires Singers perform music to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War One (tickets from Hall For Cornwall box office, 01872 262466)

Sunday November 11th

  • 10.30am - Service of Remembrance - This will be a particularly reflective service in which there will be readings, prayers, and the premiere of three new music pieces by Cornish composer Russell Pascoe sung by Truro Cathedral Choir, designed to sit within the beautiful liturgy designed for the service as we reflect on the events of the First World War.  This service will also include our poppy-drop, where thousands of poppies will gently fall from the central tower, poignantly marking the centenary of the end of the First World War.
  • 3.15pm - Royal British Legion Service of Remembrance
  • 6.30pm - Requiem Mass (Duruflé) sung by Truro Cathedral Choir

Everyone is welcome to come along to the cathedral to join these special commemorative events remembering the sacrifice of so many people during the First World War.
