100 Years of Remembrance

Remembrance Sunday LED Screen Hire

Sunday 11th November 2018

A two minutes silence was held all over the country at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

In 2018 the commemorations also signify Armistice, the centenary of the end of the First World War.

The Queen led the nation in remembrance from a balcony overlooking the Cenotaph at the national memorial in Whitehall. The Prince of Wales laid a wreath at the Cenotaph on behalf of his mother for the second year in a row.

The Monarch was flanked by the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge – while the Duchess of Sussex, the Countess of Wessex stood on neighbouring balconies.

The Royal British Legion launched their annual Poppy Appeal fundraising campaign which raises vital funds for the Armed Forces community.  In 2018 The Royal British Legion led the nation in saying Thank You to the First World War generation, all who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

LMD provided LED Screens to various events all over the UK, with a selection of their screens going to Manchester & Nottingham.

100 Years of Remembrance

Manchester

St Peters Square

Manchester City Centre fell silent as they remembered 23,792 souls from Greater Manchester who died in the First World War.

At St Peter’s Square, tributes were led by service and ex-service organisations and faith leaders. The annual Remembrance parade was followed by two minutes’ silence, starting and ending with the firing of a gun from the town hall.

After the service, there was a march-past outside Manchester Central Library and at 12.30pm bells rang out from Manchester Cathedral, St Ann’s Church, the Hidden Gem Church and other locations – which was part of a national tribute to mark the centenary.

The sound of the bells rang across the country – to give thanks and relief that took place at the end of the First World War.

Beacons were lit as part of the nation’s ‘Beacons of Light’ movement.

LMD were a great company to work with. Both prior to the event and during our event weekend, the team were extremely helpful and easy to work with. Ian and Andrew who attended the event weekend were very helpful and a pleasure, fitted in well with the rest of the event team. They went above and beyond what was asked of them and provided fantastic results throughout our live stream. We will most definitely work with them again and use LMD services.

Yorkshire Wildlife Park – Safari Nights

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU. Not only did you save us from having to cancel an event that was planned months in advance but also you restored our faith in the community spirit. We were let down by a similar company, a day prior to the planned event with no warning or communication.

What a result, the event was such a success thanks to your kindness and we received amazing reviews.
