Flag Raising Events

Daventry Town Council takes part in flag-raising events throughout the year to pay homage to the various global and national events that take place.

The flag-raising takes place at the Twinning Area in the Town at the top of London Road.

All members of the community are usually invited to thank and commemorate the day or remember those who lost their lives.

Ceremony formats are subject to change without prior notice.
