Remembrance Day Parades in Huntingdon

Remembrance Sunday is the day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the freedom we enjoy today. On this day, people across the nation pause to reflect about the sacrifices made by our brave Service people.

On Sunday 12th November, Huntingdon Town Council and RAF Wyton, will join with residents and visitors to Huntingdon to honour the memory and sacrifice of the Armed Forces and their families, from Britain and the Commonwealth, as well as the vital role played by the emergency services and those that have lost their lives as a result of conflict or terrorism.

This year’s remembrance will take place on Sunday 12th November 2023 in the Market Square. RAF Wyton will parade into the Market Square from the Princes Street entrance. There will then be a service, led by the Mayor’s Chaplain Reverend Jon Randall, and RAF Wyton’s Station Chaplain, Reverend Jesse Holland followed by a wreath laying at the Thinking Soldier statue. The parade will then march along the High Street and St Mary’s Street.

Members of the public are welcome to join us in the Market Square. Please assemble on the Market Square no later than 10.40am when the Parade will march into position.

For those unable to attend in person, a livestream of the event will be available via the town council Facebook page.  Digital copies of the order of service will be available to view on the Huntingdon Town Council website a week prior to the parade.
