Glasgow First World War Commemoration Events

A special service at Glasgow Cathedral will be followed by a wreath laying service at the city's Cenotaph on Monday 4 August 2014, the day after the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games.

Glasgow Cathedral  The UK Government is inviting Commonwealth leaders from across the globe to stay on in the city for the centenary service.  It will represent the focal point of the UK's and the Commonwealth's activities to mark the centenary. The Lord Lieutenant, Glasgow's Lord Provost Sadie Docherty, will lead the landmark service remembering Britain's role in a war begun 100 years ago.

Lord Provost Sadie Docherty said:

"I am delighted to announce that Glasgow will commemorate this significant milestone in our country's history by holding a range of events to mark the centenary year of the Great War, beginning with a special service at Glasgow Cathedral followed by a ceremony in George Square.  I know this is something that Glaswegians will want to be part of. They value their hard won freedoms and are extremely proud of their city's contribution.  I am also thrilled at the prospect of our Commonwealth cousins joining me, and the rest of Glasgow, on this important day of remembrance."
