Upcoming ceremonies at the National War Memorial

Members of the public are welcome to attend these ceremonies. If attending, please be seated inside the Hall of Memories by 10.45am.

Our ceremonial programme for 2019 has finished, more details about Pukeahu ceremonies in 2020 will be added to this page next year.

Free Carillon recitals

Every Wednesday at 12.30pm
Every Friday at 12.30pm
Every Sunday at 2.30pm

We invite you to Pukeahu to hear National Carillonist, Timothy Hurd QSM, playing the Carillon bells – all 74 of them (but probably not at the same time!) at our regular free recitals. Spice up your weekday lunchtime or Sunday afternoon with the sounds of the Carillon. Feel free to bring a picnic along.

As the Carillon is best heard from outside, we recommend you bring a coat for the recitals as we will keep calm and ‘carillon’ rain or shine!   

On occasion we have visiting military bands and guest performers - so do check this page regularly or follow us on facebook for event updates.
