Historic Halifax Minster will undergo a special transformation in time for Remembrance Sunday.

The Minster, which will be at the heart of the town’s remembrance weekend commemorations, will be illuminated red from this evening (Wednesday) in a tribute to those who lost their lives in conflict.

Vicar of Halifax, Hilary Barber, said: “We’re hoping that it will make people stop and think about why it is red and will remind them of the 
sacrifice that men and women gave in the past to secure our freedom of today.

“It’s a sign of respect and remembrance for the whole month as it will stay until the end of November.”
