Taking place on Friday 16 November, the event will feature live music and readings of remembrance. All proceeds are going to charity.

The Anglican Church of Luxembourg is organising a Remembrance Day event with readings of remembrance as well as performances by David John Pike (baritone) and Isabelle Trub (pianist).

Proceeds from the event will go to the charity COPE Laos, who help people with mobility-related disabilities in Laos. About 30% of COPE's patients were injured by the explosion of until-then unexploded ordnance left over from the Vietnam War. This is why the Anglican Church is supporting COPE on Remembrance Day with a war-themed concert.

The event will take place at the British Ambassador's Residence at 16 boulevard Roosevelt in Luxembourg City, starting at 7.45pm on Friday 16 November.

Tickets are €30, and can be bought by emailing Lynn Barclay through lynn.barclay@anglican.lu. There will be a reception following the concert.

What is Remembrance Day?

Remembrance Day is a memorial day which, since the end of the First World War, is observed in primarily Commonwealth countries in memory of the members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

This year's Remembrance Day is special in that it marks the 100-year anniversary of the end of the First World War.
