The funeral service for Tony Benn will take place at St Margaret’s Church in Westminster at 11am on Thursday 27 March. Tony Benn’s body will be taken by hearse from the gates of New Palace Yard, with family members following on foot.
This afternoon, Owen Jones issued a call for people to line the route around Parliament Square. Anyone wishing to do so should be in Parliament Square by 10:30am. It is understood that some organisations will be bringing banners.
There are only a limited number of places available in the church and applications should be made to email@example.com.
A memorial meeting will be held later in the year.
