Sadly The Tank Museum will not be able to hold its annual Remembrance Sunday service on Sunday 8 November 2020.
The decision has been made to not go ahead due to social distancing issues amid the current pandemic.
“Cancelling our annual Remembrance Sunday service is not a decision we have taken lightly”, said Simon Prager, Head of Commercial Operations at The Tank Museum.
“As a military museum, we have a close affiliation with the Armed Forces and remembering service personnel both past and present is an important part of our role here at The Tank Museum.
“Unfortunately, considering the number of visitors we would expect to attend the occasion, it would be difficult to host a Covid-secure service. We understand that visitors will be disappointed, but we feel that not holding our usual service is the safest course of action for both our staff and visitors”, he added.
Admission to The Tank Museum will be free on Sunday 8 November and the occasion will still be marked by the observation of a one minute silence at 11am. This will be communicated via the Museum’s Public Address system.
The Tank Museum hopes the usual Remembrance Sunday service will return in November 2021.
Visitors are kindly asked to book their visit in advance with The Tank Museum’s online booking system.
