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.
5.00am: Dawn Service, Wellington Arch, Hyde Park Corner
The service will last approximately 45 min, tickets are not required, but we do recommend you arrive by 4.30am to ensure a good viewing position.
11.00am: Wreath Laying Ceremony and Parade, The Cenotaph, Whitehall
Details are still being finalised for the service at the Cenotaph. The process for viewing or participating in the Parade will change for the Centenary year, and we will update this information as soon as we are able.
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 also from the Australian High Commission website from Monday 1 December 2014. Tickets are limited and will be allocated on a first come/first served basis, so please do apply as soon as possible. Tickets will be limited to 4 per application, and you will need to provide names, permanent addresses, and details of photographic ID (passport or drivers’ license) for each applicant at the time of applying. Please make sure you have all this information to hand or your application will be invalid. As always, tickets will be non-transferable.
