A civic celebration of the 75th Anniversary of VP Day at Auburn Uniting Church. Date and time to be advised. The Friends have received a grant from the Veterans Branch of the Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet to support this unique event. Whether you are a veteran, a descendant or a migrant who arrived in the period 1935 - 1950, this is an opportunity to celebrate the end of the War, and the subsequent boom. Music of the era will be provided by organist Anthony Halliday, Cathedral Brass and the Melbourne Chamber Choir, all under the direction of Dennis Freeman.
This is a free event, but bookings are essential. Bookings will open as soon as any COVID-19 restrictions are finalised.
From time to time we'll list other events which might be of interest to the Friends and their friends. Check with the organiser as to whether they will proceed during the current emergency.
The auditorium at Auburn Uniting Church is available for recitals, concerts, lectures and presentations. Full details are on the Congregation's website.
