Remembrance Sunday will take place on 8 November this year, with the main service taking place at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, central London.

The service to commemorate British and Commonwealth servicemen and women from the two World Wars and subsequent conflicts will start at 11am.

The Queen will pay tribute alongside Cabinet members, opposition party leaders - including Jeremy Corbyn - former Prime Ministers, the Mayor of London and other ministers.

Representatives of the Armed Forces, Fishing Fleets and Merchant Air and Navy will be there, as well as faith communities and High Commissioners of Commonwealth countries.

The service is open to the public and no passes or tickets are required. There will be video screens north of the Cenotaph, near the green outside the main Ministry of Defence building, and outside the Scotland Office.

Whitehall opens to the public at 8am. Anyone wishing to attend is advised to arrive early to secure a good view, and not to bring suitcases or large bags as there will be police security procedures in place.

At 9am the Royal British Legion detachments form on Horse Guards Parade and in Whitehall. They march out at 10am.

The service begins at 11am and concludes at 11:25am.

Photography is permitted, but the Metropolitan Police will remove obstacles, such as camera tripods, if they obstruct public access or views. Photography is not to be taken during the two-minute silence "when shutter noises can offend".
