Armistice Day beacon lightings 

To mark 100 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the First World War, 1200 beacons will be lit across the UK as part of ‘Battle’s Over: A Nation’s Tribute. Some of these beacons lightings will happen at places we care for, and you’re welcome to come and take part in this special event of remembrance.
