Since 2014 and the 100th Anniversary of the start of WWI, Colchester Borough Council has been supporting and facilitating a number of commemorative events across the Borough of Colchester.
This is under the guidance of the government and a number of other partners who are all working on the national commemorations of the centenary of WWI between 2014 - 2018, and this includes national and local commemorative events and cultural activities.
As the 2018 anniversary date approaches, we are keen to encourage local people to continue to hold their own commemorations, events and projects, and can offer advice and assistance for those wishing to do so.
The Borough Council is looking to commemorate the centenary itself in a number of ways and details will be included here once they are confirmed.
If you are planning a commemorative event, please let us know by emailing Fiona.Garthwaite@colchester,gov.uk and we will include the details of your event in the diary of events.
A number of events have already been arranged in the Borough the details of which are set out in the diary of events below. This list will be kept updated during the year.
