War Widows Day 2023 Event
Shortly, War Widows registered with Sydney Legacy and AWWNSW will receive a letter outlining plans for the day and how to get involved. We have also summarised them here for convenience.
The official events include a morning tea hosted by the Governor General at Admiralty House and the War Widows’ Day Ceremony which will this year be held in Martin Place.
This year's War Widows’ Day event will commence at 10.15am at the Fullerton Hotel, 1 Martin Place, Sydney. From the Fullerton, widows will be taken by coach to Admiralty House in Kirribilli for a morning tea hosted by the Governor General. The morning tea will be followed by a light lunch at the Fullerton before the War Widows’ Day Ceremony, which will close the day at approximately 3pm.
Please note, the Admiralty House morning tea is exclusively for war widows and widowers and the capacity of this function is limited to 100 people. What this means is if we receive more than100 registrations for the function, we may need to conduct a ballot to select the widows to attend. If we do need to conduct a ballot, those registered will be advised.
Transportation from the Fullerton to Admiralty House will be included (return). Transportation assistance to the Fullerton is also available to those with mobility needs.
Please register here to attend the War Widows Day 2023 event.
