In the presence of the Queen and members of the royal family, and this year celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Royal British Legion, Huw Edwards presents the annual Festival of Remembrance from the Royal Albert Hall.

Sir Cliff Richard, Alfie Boe, Katherine Jenkins and Joe McElderry perform alongside The Massed Bands of the Household Division, and the bands of HM Royal Marines, the Royal Air Force and the Brigade of Gurkhas to pay tribute to all victims of war and conflict.

The Festival includes the traditional two minute silence as poppy petals fall from the roof of the hall, each representing a life lost in war.
