2018 ANZAC Day March

ANZAC day 2016

The Ringwood Highland Pipe Band is honoured to again be performing during the RSL ANZAC day Commemoration March from the Melbourne CBD to the Shrine of Remembrance on Wednesday 25th April 2018.  Please join us for this solemn yet enjoyable event.

We are scheduled to step off from the corner of Flinders St and Swanston Street at 10:35 am.

Information for band members

Mini-bus transport

We will be running a mini-bus from the band hall into the city for the march this year.  If you are interested in getting a lift on the bus please let John Wicks and Peter Watson know.  Their email addresses and phone numbers will be emailed to you all separately.

The bus will depart the band hall at 09:00 am sharp

We expect the bus to arrive back at the Ringwood RSL at approximately 3:00 pm.  Please understand that this is a rough guide to timing as thing can change during this hectic day.  If you must be somewhere else by a set time you may want to make your own arrangements.  If you need to arrange to be picked up a call when we leave to return to Ringwood would be prudent.

Arrival Time in the city

Band members traveling to the city themselves lease be ready with your pipes and drums to tune up no later than 10:00 am. Please allow extra time to find a parking space and to walk to our marshaling point when planning your trip into the city.

Uniform

At this stage, please bring your jackets – the long range forecast is for warm weather… but this is Melbourne.  We will confirm this detail closer to the day.
