Take in the Remembrance Day service at the Cloverdale Cenotaph in Veterans Square at 10:25am. After the ceremony, warm up with activities at both the Museum of Surrey and the Surrey Archives.

At Museum of Surrey

The museum foyer will open at 9:30am with free coffee and hot chocolate. Given the ceremony outside, the full museum will only be open from 12-1pm. A temporary exhibit by Steven Purewal will be set up in the foyer, highlighting the pivotal role that Sikh soldiers played in WW1.

10:25 - The ceremony begins in Veterans Square.

11:45 - ‘Canadian Nurses in War Time’ by Renée Saklikar and Ishbel Newstead. The poem-play, written by Surrey's former poet laurete, is an artistic response to an exhibit about Canadian nurses in war time. Research for the poem-play was by Ishbel Newstead, a dedicated volunteer with Museum of Surrey and Historic Stewart Farm.

12:30 - ‘Who Am I?’ by Adhel Arop. The film tells the story of Canadian model Adhel’s quest for identity as she reconciles with her mother’s past as a child soldier in South Sudan.

At Surrey Archives

The 1912 Hall will be open from 9:30am to 1:30pm. There will be a display of archival resources and artifacts in the reference room and a quiet colouring area for children.
