Huw Edwards presents the Royal British Legion's annual Festival of Remembrance from the Royal Albert Hall in London. In the presence of Her Majesty the Queen and members of the royal family, artists including James Blunt, Leona Lewis and Jeff Goldblum will perform alongside the Central Band of the Royal Air Force and the Band of HM Royal Marines.
2019 marks 75 years since 1944, a pivotal year in the Allied fight for freedom in the Second World War. There will be unique tributes to mark the 75th anniversary of the battles of Monte Cassino, Kohima, Imphal and D-Day culminating in a parade of some of the last surviving veterans who fought and served in 1944.
Throughout the event we’ll remember the bond of friendship and collaboration that exists between Britain, the Commonwealth and her allies. As the petals fall in the Royal Albert Hall, the festival will pay tribute to all victims of war and remember those that made the ultimate sacrifice.
