First World War Centenary: 2014-18

First World War Centenary - WW1 (150x131px - red)

Adur and Worthing commemorate the Centenary of the First World War (WW1). 
On 4th August 2014 our country marked 100 years since the start of the First World War (also known as World War One or WW1) through to 2018 when WW1 ended (in 1918).

The Government, through the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, is leading plans to build a commemoration fitting of this significant milestone in world history, working alongside partners including the Imperial War Museums, Heritage Lottery Fund and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

Adur & Worthing Councils have put together this page to signpost you to some useful information to help with your own commemoration.

A special what's on guide dedicated to WW1 events in Adur and Worthing is planned which will also link into East and West Sussex, see the links below.

If you would like to have a chat about WW1 activities in our area feel free to contact us (see contact details, to right).

We will make sure this page is kept up to date with all the latest WW1 commemorative information:
