'Annual Remembrance Ceremony' This Sunday
The Annual Service of Remembrance organised by the British Embassy will be held on Sunday 8 November. The traditional service and wreath-laying ceremony will take place at the Commonwealth War Cemetery of Solymár at 10:55.

Everybody is welcome to attend this ecumenical service. 

Those who do so are kindly requested to arrive at the cemetery no later than 10:45. The service lasts approximately 20 minutes.

The Commonwealth War Cemetery is situated 16 kilometres north-west of Budapest on the road to Dorog and Esztergom. Take Route 10 from the city centre and keep going until you reach Auchan Hypermarket.

At the roundabout take the first exit for Dorog and continue for about 500 meters. An alternative approach is to leave Budapest via Hűvösvölgyi út and Hidegkúti út and then follow the signs for Route 10 through Solymár village.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Her Majesty‘s Ambassador to Hungary, Mr Paul Fox, and Mrs Vicki Fox, regret that there will not be a reception at the Residence for attendees at the Remembrance Ceremony in Solymar this year.

From mid-October poppies will be available at the British Embassy, the British Council, the Britannica School, the Budapest British International School, The British International School Budapest and St. Columba's Church of Scotland. They will also be available at the Commonwealth War Cemetery before the ceremony. All donations go to the Royal British Legion to help ex-servicemen.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, guests at the Remembrance Sunday event in Solymar should observe the following:

• Guests are required to wear face masks during the event,
• Guests should maintain social distancing and prevent overcrowding, paying special attention at pinch-points such as at the entrance/exit,
• Guests should avoid physical contact with each other and refrain from shaking hands,
• If guests feel unwell before the event, please do not attend.
