To mark this occasion St George’s Cathedral will hold a Festal Evensong on Sunday 5 February 2012 followed by a Champagne Reception on the Parvis. Attended by the Governor of Western Australia, His Excellency Mr Malcolm McCusker AO QC, Her Majesty’s representative in the State, this occasion also gathers the heads and members of Perth’s very many Royal associations and foundations.

Accession Day is also Waitangi Day, the national day of New Zealand, of which Her Majesty is Queen and Head of State. This Evensong therefore also marks the anniversary of the Treaty of Waitangi (1840) with members of the New Zealand community of Perth, the singing of the New Zealand national anthem, and prayers (in English and in Maori) for New Zealand and her people.

All are welcome.

Time: 5.00pm.
