This is a list of services for Remembrance Day and Remembrance Sunday in the North East area - from Darlington to County Durham to Middlesbrough.

Remembrance Day (Armistice Day) services will take place on Thursday, November 11 and Remembrance Sunday falls on November 14.

A two-minute silence is observed on both these days at 11am - thanking those before us who gave us the peace and freedom we enjoy today.

These services honour the lives of those who died or served in World War I, World War II and all following conflicts.

It comes after 2020's coronavirus lockdowns which saw many of these events cancelled - making this year's services even more important.
