A CIVIC service will be held at the Cenotaph in Bradford city centre next month, after the Covid pandemic led to the annual event being scaled back last year.

At a meeting of Bradford Council on Tuesday, members were informed that the 75th annual Bradford Festival of Remembrance will take place at Bradford Cathedral, at 5.00pm on Sunday November 7.

It will feature the City of Bradford Brass Band and the Bradford Cathedral Choir. The service will also feature the traditional Parade of Standards and Acts of Remembrance.
