Armistice Centenary

The Abbey marks the centenary of the Armistice, the end of the First World War, with services, music, bell ringing and family events.

Centenary of the Armistice service

11th November at 6:00pm

This service commemorates the armistice signed between the Allies and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War One. It will be televised live on BBC One.

About the service

The biggest challenge we face is actually time – getting all our work done alongside the daily routine of the Abbey as a working church, visitor attraction and home to 1,000 years of history.
