11 November 2018 marks the centenary of the end of the Great War (1914-1918). There are a number of events taking place in Marlborough to commemorate 100 years since the Armistice and we've listed a selection here. If you have a commemorative event taking place and would like us to add it, please let us know.

More permanent commemorations include streets on the new Salisbury Road development to be named after local people who served, and a commemorative wood to be planted on the Common.

Four years ago in 2014, to mark 100 years since war was declared, the Duke of Kent unveiled a plaque on the town's war memorial.  Read more here...
