The parade starts at 10.35am from the Civic Centre. It will be led by the The Royal Signals (Northern) Band and the Bearpark and Esh Colliery Band.

Two field guns will be fired from the terrace in Mowbray Park to signal the start of the two-minute silence at 11 am.

Parking in the Civic Centre car park will be available free of charge. Road closures are in place from 9.30am - with access to Civic Centre car park from Park Lane only after this point.

There will be an additional public viewing screen on Borough Road to supplement the existing screen on Burdon Road, allowing more people to get a good view of the service and parade. The tannoy system is also being extended to Borough Road.

At 11 am on Monday 11 November, residents and visitors to the city are also being asked to pause for a two-minute silence to mark Armistice Day which signalled the end of the First World War in 1918. Maroons will sound at 11am, and again at 11.02 from Mowbray Park to bring the observance to an end.
