A Service of Remembrance commemorating the end of World War One will be broadcast live from Belfast Cathedral on BBC TV and Radio Ulster on Sunday afternoon.
The service, which for security reasons is for invited guests only, is organised by the Cathedral in conjunction with the Northern Ireland World War One Centenary Committee.
The service is the culmination of the Northern Ireland commemorations of the centenary of the Armistice. The Committee’s twin themes of Remembrance and Reconciliation will be marked in this unique service to be led by the Dean of Belfast, The Very Rev Stephen Forde.
The Cathedral Choir will be singing a newly commissioned piece of music to mark the Armistice. They will be accompanied by members of the Ulster Orchestra. The service will end with a moment of reflection and light at the going down of the sun.
There will be a number of senior guests from across the United Kingdom and Ireland representing civil, religious and political society, Armed Services and Veterans’ groups, youth groups and societies and individuals who have been involved in commemorating the war since August 2014.
The service will be broadcast live on BBC1 Northern Ireland. The programme, presented by Tara Mills with commentator Seamus McKee, begins at 3.45pm on Sunday afternoon. It will feature an interview with Dean Forde. The coverage on BBC Radio Ulster, which begins at 3.30pm on November 11, will also feature interviews with Dean Forde and with Belfast Cathedral Master of the Choristers David Stevens.
