The world marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War over these next few days with Tameside poised to play its part in a unique mass remembrance.

On Monday, August 4, Tameside Council will be joining the rest of the UK in turning off lights from 10pm to 11pm for a shared moment of reflection as part of a LIGHTS OUT campaign – exactly 100 years to the hour that war was declared between Great Britain and Germany.

Buildings across the borough will be involved in the campaign.

They are Ashton Town Hall; the Concorde Suite, Droylsden; Denton Festival Hall; Dukinfield Town Hall; the George Lawton Hall, Mossley; Ryecroft Hall, Audenshaw and Stalybridge Civic Hall.
