Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service
The city of Salisbury is set to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country at its annual Remembrance Sunday Service at the War Memorial in the Guildhall Square on Sunday 12 November 2023 from 11.00am.
The ceremony will be led by the Salisbury Branch of the Royal British Legion and supported by Salisbury City Council and St Thomas’s Church.
Everyone will gather at the War Memorial for a 2-minute silence at 11.00am followed by prayers.
Following this, the parade will march along New Canal, where Deputy Lieutenant Sebastian Warrack accompanied by the Under-Sheriff of Wiltshire Christopher Bromfield and Right Worshipful Mayor Cllr Atiqul Hoque, will take the salute. The parade will then process to St. Thomas’s Church for the Sunday Service at 11.40am. All are welcome to attend this service. The Civic Party will then process back to Salisbury Guildhall via St Thomas’ Square.
Blue Boar Row, and other roads along the parade route will be shut to traffic between 10.15am and 11.45am and again at 12.15pm until 1.30pm approximately to ensure crowd safety and traffic diversions will be in place. Due to the current Fisherton Street works and one-way traffic system we advise that the public avoid driving into the city via Fisherton Street during this time. Please also avoid parking in Central Car Park on the morning of the event as further delays are expected due to these closures.
On Saturday 11 November 2023 there will be a small ceremony in the Guildhall Square at 11.00am to mark Armistice Day, which all are welcome to attend.
