In the evening, there'll be an Armistice Vigil Service - a quieter, reflective service of readings, psalms, hymns and organ music, starting at 6pm and lasting about 45 minutes.
Afterwards, the Last Post will be played in Queen's Square at 6.55pm, and a centenary beacon will be lit at 7pm, symbolising the light of hope which emerged from the darkness of war. Shortly afterwards, at 7.05pm, the bells of St Mary's will ring out, joining 1000 other towers around the country. The bells of Besthorpe Church will be rung at 7.30pm. The stirring sound of church and cathedral bells up and down the land will provide a fitting conclusion to this day of contemplation, commemoration and celebration.
