This is always the Sunday closest to the 11th November each year and begins with a procession from the Court House, passing the War Memorial with a brief pause to show respect to the fallen. The procession is led by the Mayor of Warwick, Councillors and Officials, the Court Leet and other invited guests.
Upon arriving at St Mary’s Church a service begins at 10am and ends at 10.50 and the procession then retraces its steps to the War Memorial for the Minute’s Silence, a bugler plays the last post and a wreath-laying service takes place. The Mayor lays the first wreath and is followed by over 40 dignitaries, officials and representatives of local volunteer organisations who each lay a wreath. The occasion is normally witnessed by many hundreds of townspeople who gather to watch the proceedings and is completed when the leader of the British Legion says these words -They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning. We Will remember them.
A very moving event and one that makes you proud to participate in.
