Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance 2017 (T)

Huw Edwards hosts the annual Festival of Remembrance at London's Royal Albert Hall. Emeli Sande, Tom Odell, Melanie Chisholm, Alfie Boe and Lesley Garrett are among the performers joining the Queen's Colour Squadron and the Royal Marines Band in paying tribute to the men and women who have died in combat since the First World War. The event concludes with the now-iconic poppy petal shower, which sees thousands of poppy petals rain down on the assembled audience - among which sits Her Majesty the Queen - as a symbol of each life lost.
