An important part of the ACT Branch's work is to bring together the friends of the Commonwealth in Canberra. We share companionship as well as come together to learn, celebrate and share the vibrant stories of the modern Commonwealth of Nations. Our events are for everyone, so please check our Calendar for the latest details.
Each March we celebrate the modern Commonwealth with a whole host of events including our Commonwealth Day Inter-faith Service, Commonwealth Dinner, lectures on current affairs and our much anticipated cricket-match between DFAT and the High Commissions.
Queen's Birthday Dinner
In June we mark the official birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II who as well as Queen of Australia is the Head of the Commonwealth. We usually have a guest speaker who shares with us their insights on the values of the modern Commonwealth such as democracy.
Luncheons, lectures and more...
Throughout the year we host a number of different events, from casual lunches to mark the change of season in Canberra, to lectures on aspects of the politics and history of the Commonwealth. More information is available on our website.
