Salisbury Cathedral commemorates WWI

Date Posted: 23/04/2014

Salisbury Cathedral is running a programme of World War One commemoration events for the local community, diocese and visiting school groups.

There’s a historic trail, a Roll of Honour, special services, prayer, reflective events, a Field of Remembrance and concerts - music, prose and poetry.

The first few months of the war provide the impetus for the start of the programme but there will also be occasions which commemorate significant moments until 2018.

The commemoration begins at the end of June when it marks the assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand during the weekend of 27th to 29th June.

In the autumn there will be opportunities to think more deeply about ‘just war’, hear World War One poetry and attend a special Act of Remembrance.
