Young cadets from the police and ATC (Air Training Corps) will lead a parade through the centre from Town Square to Exhibition Square at 2.40pm on Sunday (November 8).

This will be followed at 3pm by a special remembrance service, led by intu Metrocentre Chaplain, Lyn Jamieson, paying tribute to those injured and killed in action, as well as the friends and family who have been affected since World War 1.

The Salvation Army, Newcastle City Temple Band and The Ad Murum Singers from Heddon-on-the-Wall, will also be performing between 2.25pm and 2.45pm.

Helen Atkinson, marketing manager at intu Metrocentre, said: “Lyn Jamieson’s Remembrance Day services are always very moving.  We’re honoured to have the police and ATC cadets helping us this year and hope to pay a fitting tribute to all the civilian and armed forces personnel who have lost their lives serving our country in conflicts past and present.”

A separate two minute silence will be observed at intu Metrocentre at 11am on Wednesday (November 11), where visitors can take a moment of silent reflection at the venue’s special Poppy Chandelier.
