Battle of the Somme Centenary

Remembering those who fought and those who died.

Join with Her Majesty's Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire, the Cathedral community and people from across South Yorkshire as we remember those who fought and those who died at the Battle of the Somme in July 1916.

We will hear some of the stories of those who came from the communities of South Yorkshire and who served in local regiments. The commemoration will be based around the ancient office of evensong, but will provide an opportunity for all people to gather for this important act of remembrance and commemoration.

Tickets are free but limited in number.
