ANZAC DAY – 2015

The following information is provided for guidance only and will be updated once confirmed.

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 we provide the following information for your guidance only:


Saturday 25 April 2015

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. Complementary tickets are required to attend this service and can be obtained from the Australian High Commission – Further details to come regarding opening date for ticket applications.

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

09.30am: Gallipoli Association Service and Wreath Laying ceremony, St Paul’s Cathedral
