From the poignant sound of a lone piper outside the Cathedral at daybreak to a candlelit procession through Norwich at night, the city will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War with a day of special services and events.

Highlights include:

The Cathedral will then be open and candles can be lit at the Peace Globe. Breakfast will be served in Prior's Hall.
