Weymouth Remembrance Day Service and Parade to take place at Nothe Fort

This event will unfortunately be closed to the public.

Following a meeting of the Full Council, and consultation with partners, Weymouth Town Council have made the decision to relocate this year’s Weymouth Remembrance Day event on Sunday 8th November to the historic Nothe Fort.

The decision to move this event from the seafront is based on public safety and the present restrictions and guidance on mass participation events due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Cllr Graham Winter, Mayor of Weymouth Town Council, said:

“The Town Council takes great pride in its civic responsibilities and events, embracing and recognising Weymouth’s relationships with veterans’ associations, the armed forces, emergency services, and key workers.”

“The Remembrance Day service and parade on Weymouth seafront is one of the biggest and most well supported annual civic events. It has been a difficult decision to relocate the event to the Nothe Fort, but this will enable us to manage it safely for the benefit of all those attending.”

“We also plan to broadcast the service live on the Weymouth Town Council Facebook page to ensure that those who are unable to attend in-person can still feel part of the event.”

The arrangements for this event are being kept under constant review in order to take into account any updated national guidance on Remembrance Day events.
