The National Alternative Remembrance Ceremony takes place every year in front of the memorial stone for conscientious objectors in Tavistock Square in Blomsbury. We will observe two minutes' silence and white poppy wreaths will be laid on the memorial in memory of all victims of war.
All welcome - no need to book.
