The traditional Anzac Day Last Post and Ode will be performed prior to the League match, while an Anzac Day spread will be on offer, including egg and bacon damper rolls, lamingtons and Anzac biscuits. TVs will be on in The Premier’s Bar to keep an eye on the AFL Anzac Day clash between Collingwood and Essendon.
