A Nation’s Thank you - The People’s Procession
Bells to ring out and 10,000 to march past The Cenotaph as a nation says 'thank you'
Ten thousand members of the public will be invited to march past the Cenotaph to mark the centenary of the Armistice later this year, as part of ‘A Nation’s Thank you - The People’s Procession’
Descendants, family members and the public are invited to apply to take part in ‘A Nation’s Thank you - The People’s Procession’ on Sunday 11 November 2018.
At the same time, people are being encouraged to ring bells around the world, as the government is seeking to replicate the spontaneous outpouring of relief that took place in 1918. As news of the Armistice spread, church bells, which had fallen silent across the UK during the First World War, rang out in celebration.
