Special Service: Evensong & Commemoration of the Battle of Britain

Sunday 8 September at 3:30 PM

The Battle of Britain, a pivotal conflict of the Second World War, saved England from invasion and prepared the way for the subsequent liberation of Europe and the defeat of the Nazis.  The bravery and sacrifice of so many men is commemorated at Evensong today.


The service is accompanied by an Air Force wing band, and concludes with the sounding of the Last Post and Reveille.  After the service there is a formal parade and march-past on Palace Green.
