As this November is the Centenary of the declaration of the Armistice that ended World War One, it is only appropriate that the people of Carlisle have the opportunity to mark the occasion and to remember the sacrifices of those who marched off to war, many never to return. In consequence, a series of four major commemorative public events are planned on Saturday 10th November 2018 to mark this special anniversary, under the banner of “Carlisle Remembers 1918”.
This Day in 1918 will be an all-day re-enactment in the outer ward of Carlisle Castle. Here, visitors will be able to experience how the Castle and life in Carlisle might have been a hundred years ago, with soldiers being trained for battle and the wounded being treated for their life-changing injuries in the military hospital. A central part of this display will be a full-sized replica Mark IV tank, currently under construction at RAF Spadeadam and like that which sat outside the Castle gates until 1935. Teas, coffees and food will be available, served by staff in period costume and for the thirsty, a beer tent will operate under the rules of the State Management Scheme, which were in force in licensed premises at that time.
We are raising £20,000 to cover the setting up and delivery of this free public event within the grounds of Carlisle Castle. Any amount that you can contribute will help pay for costumes, props and equipment to make this day special, particularly for the families of those who fell in that conflict.
