Fleetwood's Memorial Park is a Grade II listed park in the heart of the town. Memorial Park is unique in that the entire grounds were created in commemoration of the First World War, unlike most conventional architectural memorials, and it is one of only a few listed war memorial parks and gardens in the country.

The Homecoming

The Homecoming

  • 11 November 2014 10:30am-2pm

The Homecoming will take place in Fleetwood on Armistice Day, Tuesday 11 November to mark the centenary of the First World War and will parade from Marine Hall Gardens, through the town before ending at Memorial Park.
The event will include schools, community groups, organisations, veterans and residents and people will be dressed as of the time and the town centre will be decorated accordingly with murals, bunting, flags and other reflective memorials of many homecomings that occurred during the war.
The town will be a hive of theatre activity with a variety of colourful characters from the home front and Memorial Park will host the 16th Lancers Cavalry Display Troop, mezzo-soprano Patricia Hammond, music wagon, feed stations, first aid post and more to continue the theme after the parade.
The Homecoming is part of a programme of events to celebrate Memorial Park, which is currently undergoing a complete restoration thanks to a £2.4m grant from the Heritage Lottery and Big Lottery Funds.
