Join the National Churchill Museum for a special memorial service to mark the 50th anniversary of Sir Winston Churchill's death. The Memorial service will be held at 10:30 am in the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, located at the National Churchill Museum.

Sir Peter Westmacott, British Ambassador to the United States, will speak during the service which is based on the 1965 service held at St. Paul's Cathedral in London, England.

Churchill's granddaughter, Edwina Sandys, and great grandson, Duncan Sandys, will be attending the service, along with Missouri Governor Jay Nixon.

A public reception follows at the Museum to celebrate Sir Winston's legacy and to view the new exhibit opening the same day, Churchill Through the Lens. The exhibit is a collection of images of Churchill, giving a glimpse into different facets of his life. 

A Live Stream option will be available for anyone wishing to view the memorial service but unable to attend. Please click the link below to watch the service on Saturday, January 24, at 10:30 am.
