The Footscray-Yarraville City Band is travelling to Europe in this November to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice of World War 1. 

With this in mind, today we launch the band’s fundraising appeal.  This is an opportunity for our family, friends and the greater Australian and New Zealand community to be involved in this once in a lifetime event. 

The trip is almost entirely funded by the members of the band. This campaign will cover the costs of transporting our WW1 bass drum back to Europe, cover the costs of our solo artists,  pay for venue and rehearsal hire whilst we're away and facilitate other performance-related expenses. 

Performances of our critically acclaimed show, 'The Silent ANZAC', will be the cornerstone of the tour with performances at Amiens Cathedral, Australia House, and Southwark Cathedral. The Silent ANZAC intertwines the story of the Australian submarine, the AE2, with other stories of love and loss from The Great War. 

We will also be performing at the ‘Last Post Ceremony’ at Menin Gate, which will be live-streamed back to Australia. 

A wreath-laying ceremony will be held at the Australian National Memorial in Villers-Bretonneux.  The band will play Abide with Me and The Last Post whilst wreaths are laid. If you, your family or workplace wish to have a wreath laid on your behalf please contact Lorraine Wright, our Fundraising Coordinator, on 9578 3113 or 0415 138 148.  This ceremony will be live-streamed back to Australia and posted to the internet for later viewing.
