Suffolk and Norfolk Remembers

11 November 2018, 12:00

Beacon

The nation fell silent at 11am to mark the end of the First World War, 100 years ago today and Suffolk and Norfolk will play its part again this evening.

As well as the traditional 11 o'clock services, parades and commemorations, this year, the centenary of the Armistice, something special will take place at 7pm - the region will take part in the WW1 BEACONS.

1,000 beacons will be lit across the country to remember all those who fell on our behalf - and for descendants to come together in their own communities, a century after the guns of World War One fell silent.

The national event is made up of cities, towns and villages across the East which will also mark the "home front army"; ordinary members of the public who were not in uniform who were nonetheless part of the UK's land defence between 1914 and 1918.

Tonight, leading up to the lighting of Suffolk and Norfolk's beacons at 7pm; they'll be many events of various sizes taking place
