Anzac light projection highlights fallen soldiers

Anzac light projection

This year’s Anzac commemoration in Hastings city centre will again feature the popular Anzac Light Projection onto the Hastings War Memorial Library for four days from Saturday, April 22.

In Hastings, the names of those lost in World War I and World War II are etched in granite in the Hall of Memories within the Hastings and District War Memorial Library, under the inscription: ‘Our freedom is bought with a price that others paid. As you pass through here, remember’. 

 In a further tribute to those who lost their lives those names will also feature on the outside walls of the Memorial Library, as part of an 18-metre tall light projection.

 The four-minute long projection will be on the outside walls at the main (western) entrance to the Hastings and District Wall Memorial Library, from April 22 to April 25 (Anzac Day). It will run continuously from 5am to 7am and 6pm to midnight, with a minute’s silence in between each replay.
