Somme 100 Commemoration Service
Join us on Cathedral Square for a service to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the Battle of the Somme. The service will be live-streamed onto a large screen in Cathedral Square and on Facebook. Entrance to the cathedral is by invitation only.
The service will be held in recognition of the service and sacrifice of the servicemen from Birmingham, the West Midlands and Commonweath community who fought at the battle, one of the bloodiest and most protracted Allied offensives on the Western Front during the First World War. Service personnel will join civic dignitaries, community and faith leaders, local school pupils, employers, charities and MPs attending the service.
Time 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Venue Cathedral Square
