A parade, led by the Lancastrian Brigade Corps of Drum along with the Brindle Band, leaves the Covered Market at 10.20am on Sunday 9 November.

It will go down Lancaster Road, Church Street and Cheapside and finishing on the Flag Market.

The 2nd Battalion Duke of Lancaster Regiment, 3rd Medical Regiment and 4th Battallion Duke of Lancaster Regiment also join the parade.

A service of remembrance begins at 10.30am and a two minute silence at 11am.

Mayor of Preston, Councillor Nicholas Pomfret, said: “This year’s Remembrance Day is as important as ever marking the 100th anniversary of the First World War.

“I encourage people to come to the service and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice from Preston and across the country, 100 years ago through to this day, so we can enjoy the freedoms we have today.”

The event finishes at 12noon.
