November 2018 marks 100 years since the end of World War I and there’ll be a number of events across the borough to commemorate the centenary.
The major public event will be on Remembrance Sunday (11 November), starting with the Act of Remembrance in the morning, followed by the Service of Remembrance in the evening alongside a ‘Stockport Parade of Light’ and the Lighting of the Beacon.
Stockport War Memorial Art Gallery will play a significant role in the commemorations. The exterior façade of the Art Gallery will be illuminated with a poppy projection; there will be new exhibitions in the galleries and a community art project where people can get involved.
