This November sees the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. At 11am on 11 November 1918, hostilities ceased across the many battlefields of the First World War, finally bringing over four years of intense and costly fighting to an end.
Join Auckland War Memorial Museum as we commemorate this anniversary with a day of performances and remembrance services.
Services will take place on Sunday 11 November on the Court of Honour.
From 12pm on Sunday, join us inside the Museum for a rich programme of performances featuring chamber orchestras, choirs, acoustic contemporary music, and much more from a wide range of performers including Play it Strange Peace Song winners, the NZ Ukulele Squad, The Kiwileles, ACG College Orchestra, Auckland Girls’ Choir and more.
The day’s programme will close at 8pm with a moving performance by a lone piper on the steps of the Museum before the Illuminate programme begins.
