Friday 11 April

Dr J Ray Talk



The single most important event of 2014 will take place on Monday 4th August, 100 years to the day since Britain entered the war.

This will be the day of the Commemorative March 

Full details will be unveiled shortly, but it is going to be an event of National importance. It will also be the occasion of the public unveiling of the Memorial Arch.



Throughout the year we will arrange guided walks to some of the key sites in Folkestone associated with the Great War. In the meantime, below is a map with the route of a suggested self-guided walk.

These are just some of our plans for next year. More information will be posted on this page as the Centenary comes ever nearer.
