The tenth Northern Festival of Remembrance returns to Fleetwood Marine Hall on Saturday.

Following the interval, the Drumhead Service of Remembrance will be conducted by the Rev Canon John Hall with readings by the Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire Lord Shuttleworth and the High Sheriff of Lancashire, the Hon Ralph Assheton. A special gratitude of the young will be introduced by John Barnett.
