Bein Gallipoli for Anzac centenary

Bein Gallipoli for Anzac centenary

Be in Gallipoli in 2015 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Anzac landing with two special tours now available from Tempo Holidays.

Tempo has the centenary well-covered for pilgrims who are successful in obtaining tickets for the official ceremonies at Gallipoli, as well as those who are unable to obtain tickets but wish to be nearby.

The 8-day Legends of Gallipoli Pilgrimage departs 19 April 2015 and the 9-day Anzac Spirit Pilgrimage departs 22 April 2015, both from NZ$4400* per person twin share.

Those with tickets to the ceremonies will attend official Anzac Day services, while those without tickets will observe from a ferry anchored offshore. A broadcast of the service is planned to be shown on large screens on-board.

The tours depart Istanbul and feature excursions accompanied by expert military historians who will explain the events that took place a century ago. The itineraries include a full-day city tour taking in the Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar, a visit to the ancient ruins of Troy and plenty of time in Gallipoli to explore significant sites such as Anzac Cove, the French Memorial and V-Beach Cemetery.

Both tours also include 3-star hotel accommodation, daily breakfast, some meals, arrival and departure group airport transfers, tour escorts and sightseeing and entrance fees.

Tempo Holidays has been organising Anzac Day pilgrimages for more than 20 years and will ensure you get the most out of this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Centenary services are expected to draw the largest crowds ever seen at Gallipoli and the pilgrimage tours aim to provide a deeper understanding of the Gallipoli campaign.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
