Gurkha Parade

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Gurkha Parade has been cancelled.

With regards to future events, these will be considered alongside Government advice and guidance nearer the time.

Brecon Town Council hosts an annual event whereby the Gurkha Wing (Mandalay) exercises its right under an Honorary Citizenship to parade through the Town.

This is a colourful and memorable occasion and everyone is welcome to attend the parade and watch the cultural performances that follow.

On Sunday, 9th June 2019 the Annual Gurkha Parade took place on the Bulwark and was followed by a celebration of the Twinning of Brecon and Dhampus took place in February 2019.


Unfortunately the wreath laying ceremony at St Mary’s Church, and Parade to the Cathedral on Remembrance Sunday have been cancelled due to the ongoing Pandemic and public safety concerns.
A Service will take place at 11am on Remembrance Day at the Cathedral, though due to restricted numbers attendance is by invite only. However, the Service can be accessed via a live streaming on Brecon Cathedral’s Facebook page.
Thank you for your understanding.
