REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY
The annual Remembrance Day service will be held on Sunday 12 November at the Cenotaph in Whitehall to honour the servicemen and women who sacrificed their lives for their country. The service has changed little since it was first introduced in 1921 – hymns are sung, prayers are said and a two minute silence is observed on the stroke of 11 o’clock, the World War One moment of ceasefire.

Exhibition of the week

ALISON LAMBERT CHARCOAL DRAWINGS AND MONOTYPES
Alison Lambert’s new drawings continue the intense examination of the isolated human head, while adding suggestions of background landscape forms. These background features provide additional elements of location and a sense of mystery and ambiguity. The exhibition will run at the Jill George Gallery until 2 December.
