Anzac Day 2015 - London
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 updates.
5.00am: Dawn Service, Wellington Arch, Hyde Park Corner
The service will last approximately an hour and tickets are not required.
11.00am: Wreath Laying Ceremony and Parade, The Cenotaph, Whitehall
The wreath laying ceremony at the Cenotaph on Whitehall has been designated as a United Kingdom National Commemoration for 2015.
Descendants of those who fought in the Gallipoli campaign are invited to participate in the Cenotaph service, either by marching or viewing the service from a reserved area. Others who are interested in participating in the March Past are also invited to register.
Members of the public who wish to attend but not participate do not require tickets. Further details will be available from DCMS in March.
PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO SECURITY CONSTRAINTS IT WILL NOT BE POSSIBLE FOR MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC TO ATTEND BOTH THE CENOTAPH AND WESTMINSTER ABBEY. PLEASE ADVISE SHOULD YOU CHOOSE THE SERVICE AND THEREFORE WILL NOT REQUIRE YOUR WESTMINISTER ABBEY TICKET.
1.00pm: Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving, Westminster Abbey
Please note that the initial tickets available to attend the Anzac Day service at Westminster Abbey have been allocated. Tickets are limited, and because of the significant nature of the centenary year, we expected, and received a very high volume of applications in a short time.
Tickets will be posted in early/mid April 2015. The service will last approximately one hour.
All tickets will be strictly non-transferable: they will be individually named, and on the day you will need to carry the photographic ID you used when applying
