We Will Remember 2018

Join us for a day of Remembrance, Parades, poppyfying, church services and choir performances.

Parade to start at Lady bridge at 10:45. Service, wreath laying and silence at 11am at the cenotaph at St. Edithas Church. Following the service, the parade will reassemble and make their way towards the Castle Grounds.

Tamworth Lady Meadow Womens Institute have been busy making more than 2,000 poppies with the local community which will cascade down the castle walls. The parade will finish on the Castle Grounds lower lawn met by the harmonies of Tamworth's local choirs: Tamworth Voice, Tamworth Ladies Choir and Mercian Singers.


If you like to make a poppy please take a look at the "How to" guide below and video.
