Battle's over - commemorating the end of The Great War

Centenary Beacons

On 11 November 2018, the United Kingdom and its friends overseas will mark the day 100 years previously when the guns fell silent at the end of the Great War. The Queen's Pageantmaster has announced that there will be a Centenary Beacon lit at Westminster Abbey and is inviting communities across the country to hold their own remembrance ceremonies. Chichester District Council is encouraging parishes to light their own beacons and is making up to £250 available for each parish to assist with preparations.

National events are planned for Sunday 11 November 2018.
