The Canadian capture of the Passchendaele ruins on 10 November 1917 marked the end of the Battle of Passchendaele. On 10 November 2022, the 'Passchendaele Ceremony' commemorates the end of the battle and all victims, regardless of nationality. The ceremony starts at 6 PM with a subdued reflection at the Crest Farm Canadian Memorial, followed by a torchlight procession along Canada Avenue. The procession follows the route of the bloody last hundreds of metres of the attack and ends at Passchendaele church.

Wednesday 10 November

03.00 PM Armistice service of rememberance in the chapel

In the Upper Room, the shrine of the Ypres Arch said Tubby, we remember the victims of World War I and in particular the Talbotousians who went before us. The service will be presided over by Rev Ken Madden, Talbot House Warden. Attendance by invitation only due to the limited number of places.

08.00 PM Concert A sense of Peace: Alexander Kashpurin & System 5 Brass

Our first Concert Hall Music is titled 'A Sense of Peace', a phrase by which founder Tubby Clayton referred to what his visitors sought in the House during the Great War. Today, it is fair to say that little has changed on that front. On the eve of Armistice Day, Russian and American musicians climb the stage together to offer us too a "sense of peace" in what still remains a complicated world.
