Vigil at DSEI Arms Fair

13/09/2021 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Vigil on Monday 13th September at the ExCel Centre, Eastern Entrance. We will be meeting at 6.30pm, Royal Victoria DLR to walk to the ExCel Centre. The vigil itself will take place at the ExCel Centre from 7pm to 8pm.

Come along to this silent vigil held the evening before the September DSEI arms fair at the ExCeL Centre in East London. Every two years, arms companies come here for a week to display their weapons to buyers from across the world- including repressive regimes.

Pax Christi, Quaker Peace & Social Witness and Quaker Roots have been working together to hold a silent, multi faith candle-lit vigil. This event is open to all ages. As this is a candlelit vigil, please bring a lantern/jar with a candle in and something to light it with.


We will gather at Royal Victoria DLR station, on the south side, by the roundabout on Seagull Lane, London, E16 1BY at 6:30pm.

We will then walk to the location of the vigil, which will be held at ExCel Centre, Royal Victoria Square, London, E16 1AB.

We ask that you arrive on time as we will be passing through the security fence for this event and the gates may be closed once the vigil has started.

We encourage social distancing and mask wearing.

The weather may be wet and/or cold, so we advise wearing warm and waterproof clothes.

Please note this event may be subject to last-minute change due to COVID. We will post details of changes here or please contact the office if you are unsure.
