Watford will Remember: Remembrance Sunday beacon lighting to mark the end of the First World War.
Led by Elected Mayor Peter Taylor, the Museum will be joining organisations and communities around the country in a historic beacon lighting ceremony to commemorate the 100 anniversary since the end of the First World War.
3pm: Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Watford Mayor Peter Taylor , MP Richard Harrington outside Town Hall.
Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “This November marks the centenary of the end of the First World War. The impact that the First World War had on our town was enormous. Huge numbers of Watford men joined the call to arms. The town also pulled together around the war effort.
“That’s why I’m really proud that we’re able to remember our town’s role in the Great War and the people from Watford who made the ultimate sacrifice.”

The Beacons will symbolise the 'light of hope' that emerged from the darkness of war.
Watford's beacon lighting ceremony will take place in the gardens of Watford Museum at 7pm on Sunday 11 November and will be a chance to pay your personal and community tribute to those millions that gave their lives for their country during the dreadful darkness of four years of War.
