New Zealand High Commission London, United Kingdom
Anzac Day 2015 - London
Saturday 25 April 2015
2015 marks the 100th anniversary since the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli. On Saturday 25 April 2015, there will be three commemorative ceremonies in London – a Dawn Service, a wreath laying ceremony at The Cenotaph and a service at Westminster Abbey. We anticipate that the interest in these services will be high, and are currently working through arrangements such as how and when tickets will be made available. Please check back regularly on our website for further details.
Our expectation is that the three services will follow a very similar format to previous years, and for guidance we provide the following:
5.00am: Dawn Service, Wellington Arch, Hyde Park Corner
11.00am: Wreath Laying Ceremony and Parade, The Cenotaph, Whitehall
1.00pm: Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving, Westminster Abbey
The service will last approximately 1 hour. Complimentary tickets are required to attend this service and can be obtained from this website and the Australian High Commission – further details to come regarding opening date for ticket applications.
09.30am: Gallipoli Association Service and Wreath Laying ceremony, St Paul’s Cathedral
Additionally, the Gallipoli Association hold a service and wreath laying on 25 April. Whilst the High Commission is represented at this service, we do not organise it, so any queries about attendance should be directed to the Gallipoli Association via www.gallipoli-association.org
