THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEERS
ANZAC Day in Antibes is a non-profit ceremony organised for the benefit of the expatriate community in Antibes and the surrounding region. The event is organised by volunteers with the support of the office of the Mayor of Antibes Juan-les-Pins.
Year upon year, ANZAC Day in Antibes is growing in size and reputation. We would be sincerely grateful for any assistance offered by the public, either in helping us to promote the event or the logistics on the day. If you would like to get involved please don't hesitate to contact us.
In the meantime, the ANZAC ANTIBES committee would like to express our sincere thanks to the generous individuals who have donated their time, expertise and energy into making ANZAC Day in Antibes a successful, meaningful commemoration of our fallen soliders.
Lest we forget.
OUR MISTRESS OF CEREMONIES

MERCI DANIEL BOULLE
ANZAC Day is not ANZAC Day without the traditional bagpipes. Daniel's dedication and prowess has become an essential and moving part of ANZAC Day in Antibes. Watching the sun rise over the Med whilst listening to Auld Lang Syne is not to missed.
MERCI MICHEL TOLOSANO
We are blessed to be able to hold our ceremony each year in an enigmatic location, the Fort Carre in Antibes, and, year after year, with stunning weather. Michel TOLOSANO, has continued to donate his time and expertise to produce the beautiful photos that you will see on this site and on our Facebook page. Our sincerest thanks for the dedication and the hours he spends not only taking these photos but editing and transferring them to us.
NEW ADDITION TO THE FAMILY
THANK YOU KEITH KNIGHT
We were so lucky to have Keith KNIGHT join the ANZAC Antibes family for the Main Service in 2018. Dressed in full scottish kilt he played Amazing Grace and a beautiful version of Waltzing Matilda. We're looking forward to seeing him again in the future.
MERCI REGIS FAMELART
We are very sad to hear that Regis passed away on the 30 October 2018. A generous and good man, Regis accompanied Daniel Boulle on the scottish drum, adding another dimension to the atmosphere created by traditional music on ANZAC Day 2017. Together they played the well-known Amazing Grace and The Water is Wide, a folk song of Scottish origin. Regis will be sincerely missed by his family, friends and all that crossed his path.
