The Royal British Legion welcomes members of the Royal family, Government Ministers and the public to join in an annual Festival of Remembrance, commemorating all those who have lost their lives in conflicts.
Huw Edwards presents The Royal British Legion’s annual Festival of Remembrance from the Royal Albert Hall in London. In the presence of Her Majesty The Queen and members of the Royal Family, Emeli Sande, Tom Odell, Melanie C, Alfie Boe and Lesley Garrett perform alongside The Queen’s Colour Squadron and The Band of HM Royal Marines. From the two World Wars to resent day conflict, as the poppy petals fall, the Festival will remember all victims of war and those that made the ultimate sacrifice.
There are two performances, with the latter attended by the Royal Family. Highlights of the performance, which will include special guest artists, military bands and a drumhead service, will be broadcast on BBC TV and radio.

Please be aware that everyone attending the performance will be subject to a security search which may take some time. So please ensure that you allow enough time to get into the Hall before the performance starts. Baggage must be kept to a minimum as excessive baggage will slow down the search points and delay entry. Additionally, please do not bring any pocket or pen knives or sharp objects as they will be confiscated at security and not guaranteed to be returned
Ticket holders will need to bring with them photographic ID and ticket for access to the Royal Albert Hall via police search entry points on the day. If ticket holders do not have access to photographic ID, they may bring with them 2 utility bills (proof of address).
