Singleton: Freedom of Entry

Be a part of history this October when hundreds of soldiers from the Lone Pine Barracks School of Infantry march through the streets of Singleton town centre, celebrating the 55th anniversary of the granting of Freedom of Singleton to the Singleton Military Area.

In accordance with military law and tradition, cities can grant the right to Freedom of Entry to military units, authorising them to freely march through the streets to mark ceremonial occasions with swords drawn, bayonets fixed, drums beating, bands playing and ensign flying.

The parade will march through the streets of Singleton from 11am to 12:30pm on 16 October, forming on Hunter Street before marching along John Street, briefly halting for a special challenge to their right of entry. The procession will then move along Dr Maffey Drive and conclude at Civic Park. In what promises to be a truly impressive sight, the Freedom of Entry parade is not to be missed and members of the public are encouraged to line the streets.
