Organised by the Royal Commonwealth Society, the oldest charity dedicated to the Commonwealth, the Commonwealth Day Service of Celebration is the world’s premier public event to celebrate the Commonwealth. The Service provides an annual opportunity to promote the value and values of this voluntary association of nations bound together in common endeavour.

​This annual event, held at Westminster Abbey, celebrates the unity, diversity, and linkages of the modern Commonwealth and seeks to foster greater understanding of the Commonwealth’s achievements and role, particularly amongst its young people. 

Guests of honour among the 2,000-strong congregation include Members of The Royal Family, the Commonwealth Secretary-General, High Commissioners, senior politicians and dignitaries from across the UK and the Commonwealth, alongside Commonwealth Games athletes, faith leaders, and over 600 school children from across the United Kingdom.
