The BBC has today announced that a Service of Thanksgiving will be held for the late Sir Terry Wogan at Westminster Abbey. 


The event, which will celebrate the broadcaster’s life, will take place on the 27th of September. 

The 77-year-old died in January of this year. His family confirmed at the time that Wogan had passed away after a “short but brave battle with cancer”.


Wogan’s broadcasting career spanned more than 50 years, from the Eurovision Song Contest to Children in Need through to his regular BBC Radio 2 shows and television chat show Wogan, which ran for a decade on BBC1.
