The Last Post

Friday 8th May 2020 (Bank Holiday)

2.55pm – The Last Post is played at the Four Peaks five other locations of the United Kingdom

Individual members of the Air Training Corps, Army Cadets, Sea Cadets and the Combined Cadet Force will play the Last Post at the top of the four highest peaks in the UK, a feat never undertaken before. We were keen to see young people playing a leading role in the VE Day celebrations and were delighted when these organisations agreed to take part.

The Last Post will also be played at five of the most widespread locations of the UK – Land’s End, Cornwall; Lowestoft, Suffolk; St David’s, Pembrokeshire, Wales; the Scottish island of Unst, and Enniskillen Castle, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, and the Tan Hill Inn, Richmond, North Yorkshire.
