Today is the 99th anniversary of the outbreak of the Great War

TODAY, Sunday, 4 August, it is just one year until the national commemorations for the First World War Centenary begin.

This milestone provides a great opportunity for you to publicise your activities and events to mark the centenary and to continue to raise awareness of the collective First World War Centenary Partnership Programme.

If you want to contact your local newspapers to tell them what you are planning, the Imperial War Museum has created a quick and easy press release template, which you can fill in with details about your programme, your logo and a quote from someone in your organisation.

Please note, you MUST be signed up as a member of the Imperial War Museum’s 1914 Centenary Partnership to be able to access this resource – head to to sign up.

The Cenotaph in Whitehall – currently being renovated ready for next year’s commemorations.
