Commemoration Service

Thursday 25 April 2019

The ANZAC Commemoration Service is held at the ANZAC Memorial, Hyde Park, adjacent to the Pool of Remembrance, commencing at 12.30pm.

The service has developed into an impressive dedication to ANZAC, usually attended by His Excellency the Governor, Premier of New South Wales, Leader of the Opposition, senior service representatives, invited guests and members of the community. In recent years a United Drumhead Service has been introduced. This year support is to be provided by cadets from The Scots College and a choir accompanied by the NSW Police Concert Band.

NSW Police Concert Band and the Scots College Massed Pipe Band traditionally provide music for the Commemoration Service and take post in the band bay and pool surrounds as directed.
