Tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
To commemorate the National Day of Mourning, Thursday 22 September, you’re invited to join us for a special tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The tribute will begin in Prince George Plaza, Playford Boulevard, Elizabeth. Please arrive at 9:15am for a 9:30am start.
This will be an opportunity to bring the community together to pay their respects and reflect on Her Majesty’s life of service.
The tribute, to be led by Mayor Glenn Docherty, will include the laying of a wreath at Windsor Green Fountain on behalf of the City. The community will be invited to lay their own tributes with a limited number of single flower tributes available.
The City of Elizabeth Pipe Band, who performed for the Queen’s visit in 1977, will be playing in the Royal Stewart Tartan — the personal tartan of The Queen that is most commonly worn by the royal household.
This is a standing event, however limited seating will be available for those who require it.
The commemorative event will conclude at 10am, and will be immediately followed by a live screening of the National Memorial Service that is being held in Canberra.
Screening of the National Memorial Service (free, but bookings are essential)
Following the commemorative event, a live feed of the National Memorial Service will be hosted in the Function Room, Playford Civic Centre, Elizabeth.
This is a free ticketed event and will begin at 10:30am sharp, commencing with a minute’s silence. Doors will be closed at 10:25am to prepare for the minute’s silence and will reopen after the minute’s silence.
