The Field of Remembrance opened on Thursday the 3rd of November 2022 at Cardiff Castle to commemorate Remembrance Sunday and Remembrance Day. The Field of Remembrances serves as a place for people to pay their respects to those who have lost their lives in conflict.
The field is decorated with rows of crosses, some with photos or messages from loved ones. A remembrance service marked the official opening of The Field of Remembrance with a two-minute silence observed at 11am. The Royal Welsh Fusiliers also played the Last Post, and the Exhortation was read by Reverend Canon Stewart Lisk. First Minister Mark Drakeford along with Members of the Senedd were in attendance.
The field is free to enter and open from 9am to 5pm for two weeks, until the 17th of November.
