This service is a public event to commemorate the 131 men who lost their lives during the WWI bombing raid of the Drill Hall on 3rd September, 1917.

During the weeks before the service there will be a display of handmade poppies in the Drill Hall Library.

If you would like to contribute to this display by hand-crafting or knitting poppies, please email to
