THE LONGEST SERVING ARMISTICE PARADE IN BRITAIN

                          When you go home,

                          Tell them of us and say,

                          For your tomorrow

                          We gave our today.

The Kohima Epitaph

They shall not grow old as we  who are left grow old,

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn;

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

The Exhortation

The 2020 Armistice due to take place on Wednesday 11th November has been altered due to Covid-19 and the implications and risk to participants. The committee has consulted with the various authorities and acting upon their advice has taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s parade. There will be a limited attendance service at the cemetery commencing at 10.55am which will hopefully be streamed to the Armistice Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ArmisticeBedworth

Honouring the fallen since 1921

Bedworth in Warwickshire retains the tradition of celebrating Armistice Day at the exact hour, day and month each year. It is now the largest and most famous Armistice Day Parade in Britain. The service is held at the War Memorial in Bedworth's Coventry Road Cemetery in the presence of the Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire representing H.M.The Queen, the Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth, invited dignitaries and guests, the citizens of Bedworth and the surrounding towns, and supporters from all over the country who travel just to "be there" on the day.
The parade marches through Bedworth town centre before forming up in the Cemetery for the Armistice service; after which the parade marches along the Rye Piece Ringway where the salute is taken, wheeling left at the Pin Island to re-enter the pedestrian zone and dismisses at The Alms Houses.
