BFBS Virtual Act of Remembrance

BFBS Invites the Military Community to Participate in Its Virtual Act of Remembrance

Remembrance Day 2020 is one of the many public events this year that will not take place in its usual form because of the coronavirus pandemic - but that does not mean we cannot pay our respects to the fallen.

In a year where parades may not be possible, and services are socially distanced, BFBS is inviting the military community to join them in a virtual act of Remembrance.

The public has been asked to stay away from the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday 2020 in line with the measures put in place to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, while other gatherings around the country will not go ahead as they normally do at this time of year.

To make sure the military community still has a space to join together, BFBS invites you to participate in an act of virtual remembrance by sharing your own ‘words of remembrance’ with us.

This could be what Remembrance means to you or who or what you remember in those quiet moments of reflection – sent in as a poem, story or just a few of your own words that evoke a powerful emotion.     

Please send your words to by 2 November

All contributions should be your own work and many will be published on the BFBS virtual remembrance wall on for all to read, with many of your thoughts and emotions shared across BFBS’s radio stations.

BFBS will also turn one of these contributions into a beautiful typography video that will be shared across its social media channels on 8th November.
