Welcome to

Colsterworth Festival of Remembrance

Within the village of Colsterworth, we hold an annual Festival of Remembrance at our memorial. Our village comes together to remember those who have fallen within WWI, WWII & recent conflicts.

We welcome all residents from our village and surrounding villages, to come along and show your support.
"At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
we will remember them."
