Light For Life Ceremony
Sunday 2nd October 2011
Salisbury Cathedral, Wiltshire
10th Anniversary of the conflict in Afghanistan
A candle for every British military life lost over the past 10 years in Afghanistan
The Light For Life Ceremony is being held to honour the 10th anniversary of the conflict in Afghanistan. The service will be taking place in Salisbury Cathedral on Sunday 2nd October 2011 at 3pm. Although priority seating is reserved for ticket holders, additional seating will be available for anyone else who wishes to attend on the day - all are welcome. We are honoured that the Royal Patron of DecAid, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall will be attending the service and DecAid Patron, General Sir Nick Parker will be giving the address.
At 1.40pm the Somerset ACF Band will parade through the cathedral close and perform outside the main doors of the cathedral. The main doors will then open at 2pm and the congregation should be seated by 2.45pm. An avenue of young trees will line the path to the cathedral. Each one will represent a regiment who has lost someone in Afghanistan over the past decade.
There is no strict dress code for the service. However, members of the armed forces may wear service dress with leather and medals if they wish.
Should you still wish to have tickets for the service please email firstname.lastname@example.org and state how many tickets you would like and your postal address.
The Light for Life Ceremony will mark the end of DecAid's year-long appeal.
