Cambridge lone piper to mark anniversary of WW1

War Memorial, Cambridge

Cambridge will mark the outbreak of the First World War with a lone piper playing a lament from the balcony of the city’s Guildhall.

The city’s mayor, Cllr Gerri Bird, and the vice-chancellor of Cambridge University, Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, will also light candles in the window of the Guildhall during the ceremony, which will take place at 10pm on Monday, 4 August.

Earlier in the evening, at 6pm, a special service will be held at Great St Mary’s Church in Cambridge.
