COFEPOW has asked the Royal British Legion for tickets to the Cenotaph Service and Parade in Whitehall on Sunday November 12th., now that the situation regarding covid is allowing for a resumption of normality. Acknowledgement of our application has now been received from the RBL, and we’ll receive further instructions from the Remembrance Events Team from May, as follows:
5th May - All association ticket requests to be submitted. Any requests received after this deadline will not be accepted.
25th May - RBL to confirm 2023 ticket allocation to each association.
25th August - Deadline for associations to complete individual participant information.
30th-31st October - Registration closes. E-tickets and instructions sent to individuals.
In July’s issue of the newsletter, David Brede will provide further clarification. Meanwhile, if you would like to be considered for a ticket, please register your interest by the 20th April latest, by contacting David Brede, COFEPOW Chair, by post at 3, Blossom Way, Little Billing, Northamptonshire NN3 9ET or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 07930 960241.
Please include your connection/relationship to the FEPOW you wish to represent in your message, and tickets received will be distributed on a first come, first served basis to those eligible.
Please be aware that:
- Those who wish to attend are advised that they must be on Whitehall by 9.00am: extra time is needed to go through security so it is an early start on what could be a cold and wet morning.
- There is a great deal of standing about from assembly, through the 11.00 Silence and Service and until the final march-off. The parade is dismissed at about 12.45.
- Once COFEPOW tickets are allocated, personal details are submitted to the RBL for security. Tickets are strictly non-transferable as they are issued to people by name and proof of ID will be required.
