Bloxham Banner Escort at RBL Festival of Remembrance
Congratulations to Sixth Form student Josh V (Cr) who has been selected to represent Bloxham School CCF as a banner escort at the Royal British Legion's annual Festival of Remembrance this weekend.
The Royal British Legion hosts the annual Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 11th November to commemorate all those who have lost their lives in conflicts. In the presence of Her Majesty The Queen and members of the Royal Family, Emeli Sande, Tom Odell, Melanie C, Alfie Boe and Lesley Garrett perform alongside The Queen’s Colour Squadron and The Band of HM Royal Marines. From the two World Wars to present day conflict, as the poppy petals fall, the Festival will remember all victims of war and those that made the ultimate sacrifice.
Tune in on the day to BBC Radio 2 (8pm) or BBC ONE (9pm) for live action.
