EVENT: DLI Reunion & WW1 weekend
Across the weekend of Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 September, Durham Light Infantry are holding a reunion and a WW1 commemorative weekend.
One of the highlights of the weekend is the unveiling of the memorial statue in the Market Place on Sunday and a dedication ceremony will also take place remembering the soldiers of the DLI and marking the anniversary of the start of the First World War.
The ceremony, on Sunday 14 September, will follow the annual Durham Light Infantry annual Association Parade and Review in Durham Market Place. The day will also include the DLI Reunion service in Durham Cathedral, which will also commemorate the start of the First World War.
There will also be a marquee on Palace Green featuring First World War exhibitions and displays across the whole weekend.
