A national celebration for 100 years of remembrance is taking place on November 11th 2018 at The Castle Mound, QE11 Hall Field Park, Earl Shilton at 6.30pm.  We have Kibworth Band attending the event to play, there will also be a short service followed by the playing of The Last Post at 7pm, and the Beacon Lighting.
At 7.05pm the church bells will ring out at the same time as over 1000 other church bells nationwide. Following this, the event will then move into St Simon & St Jude Parish church (The Vicarage, Maughan Street, Earl Shilton, Leicestershire, LE9 7BA) for refreshments and an evening of music, singing and poetry, ending at 8.30pm.
