Northampton will honour members of the armed forces who have lost their lives and fought in the line of duty with a Remembrance Day parade and service on Sunday, 10 November.

The day will begin at 9.30am, when the Northampton Pipe Band and the Air Training Corps Band lead a parade of veterans on a march from the Market Square to All Saints’ Church.

At 9.45am the Mayor of Northampton will lead a procession of councillors and town dignitaries from The Guildhall to join the parade, which will then gather in front of the church and enter shortly before 10am, for the Remembrance Service.

Anyone wishing to attend the service should be seated by 9.40am.

At the end of the service, the parade will re-assemble in George Row at approximately 10.50am, and the traditional two minutes silence will begin at 11am, at the first stroke of All Saints' clock. The laying of wreaths will then take place in the All Saints’ Church Memorial Garden.

The parade will then continue on its procession march around the church, past the Guildhall, along St Giles’ Street, into Fish Street and onto Abington Street, where it will dismiss.
