The Town Council organises the Annual Service of Remembrance in Leamington Spa each year. As customary throughout the United Kingdom, the fallen of two World Wars, and numerous other conflcits, are honoured with the laying of wreaths and observance of two Minutes' Silence. This year the Service will take place at the War Memorial at Euston Place, commencing at 10.50 a.m. on Sunday 13th November. The Service is of approximately 3/4 hour duration. It is conducted outdoors and Members of the public are welcome to attend. A shorter service observing 2 Minutes silence will also take place at the War Memorial on Friday 11th November at 11.00 am. Members of the public are welcome to attend both these services.
Each year the Service is preceded by a march of Units from Regent Street, along the Parade with formation at Euston Gardens, adjacent the War Memorial. Organisations taking part include the Royal British Legion, Royal Naval Association, Royal Air Force Association, Royal Warwickshire Regimental Association, Royal Leamington Spa Home Guard Club, the Army and Sea Cadets, Cubbington Silver Band and the Choir of All Saints Church.
