Festival of Remembrance 2020



The Royal British Legion has developed plans to ensure the Festival of Remembrance will go ahead this year, and together with the BBC is creating a pre-recorded programme that will be broadcast on BBC One on Saturday 7 November.

In light of current government restrictions and social distancing guidelines we are unable to offer the opportunity for members, staff, volunteers or members of the public to attend the filming of the event.

We recognise that this will be disappointing news for many but it is a necessary step to comply with government guidance and to protect the health and well-being of those who would be travelling to and attending the event whilst Coronavirus is still present.

Mindfulness - Bringing Your Mind And Body Together

 


Everyone is stressed. Everyone has pressures. And it is hard to slow down in this fast-paced world. 

Mindfulness helps you to focus on the present, rather than focusing on the past.

Welcome to the Army’s Mindfulness Course which has been available to serving Army personnel for some time, but it has now been opened up to a wider audience. Although this is an eight-week course, and it will be rolled out over eight weeks, it is designed so you can go at your own pace

British Legion Remembrance



Remembrance is a prescient time for bringing people of all ages and backgrounds together to reflect upon the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces, and to join together in the hope for a brighter, peaceful future.

As the champions of Remembrance and the UK’s leading Armed Forces charity, The Royal British Legion brings the whole nation together on 11 November every year. A vital part of our work is to support the teaching of Remembrance across the UK, from schools to youth clubs to individuals who simply take an what we can learn from the wars of the past.

Teaching Remembrance is key to understanding how modern diverse Britain was created and the shared heritage of service and sacrifice across all the UK’s communities. It also allows us to better comprehend what those who served, both on the front-line and at home, went through. The benefits of these lessons are vast, particularly for children and teenagers.

Through our teaching materials, everyone can access and learn about the heritage and tradition of Remembrance.
