Events to mark Armistice Day will be held in Newtown this weekend.

The annual Festival of Remembrance will be held at The Monty Club on Saturday, 9 November at 7pm.

Musical items will be provided by Newtown Silver Band with musical director Steve Edwards and guest artistes.

This will be followed by a short service and act of remembrance led by the Rev Canon Nia Wyn Morris and Mr Arfon Williams, Chairman of Newtown RBL.
Tickets are available in advance from members of the RBL at £5.00 (£6.00 on the door).  All proceeds to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.  Contact 01686 627764.

Armistice Day is commemorated every year on 11th  November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918.

Newtown Silver Band will lead the annual Armistice Parade and service which will commence from Broad Street at 10.30am on Sunday, 11th November.

It will reach the town's Cenotaph where remembrance will take place with the laying of poppy wreaths.
