Keighley Remembrance Sunday

On Sunday 14 November, the Keighley Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service will be held.

The parade will leave Russell St at 09:35 and march to Keighley Shared Church. The parade will be formed up of Civic Dignitaries, representatives from the Royal British Legion, veterans and local groups. The Church capacity this year has been limited to help reduce the risk of Covid. The Church service will be for invited guests and veterans only. Keighley Shared Church will be placing speakers outside the church for people to listen to the service on Church Green. They will also be live streaming the service, via Keighley Parish Youtube page and with a link from the Keighley Shared Church Facebook page.

The church service will finish at 10.30 when the parade will then march along North Street to Town Hall Square. Revd Mike Cansdale, Rector of Keighley said “I’ve shortened the service in church so that all those attending at Town Hall Square feel to be fully part of this important commemoration. As the community of Keighley we’ll remember those who have died in war but also commit together to work for peace.” The service will continue in Town Hall Square before the two minutes silence at 11.00 and wreath laying. An order of service will be available for those attending.

Town Mayor Cllr Julie Adams said ‘Remembrance Sunday is an important day in the Council’s calendar. It is a time to remember all those who gave their lives for our today. We are pleased that we can hold the Remembrance Sunday parade and service this year and we hope to see many members of the Keighley public attend.’

Those attending Town Hall Square for the two minutes silence will be encouraged to follow current government guidelines for Covid.

Road closures will be in place for the parade from 09.00 until 12pm.
