What You Need To Know About The Vigil For Eurydice Dixon Tonight

Melbourne was rocked last week by the death of 22-year-old Eurydice Dixon. The comedian was murdered while walking home in Princes Park.

A vigil will be held tonight to remember Dixon as well as to show a sign of gentle resistance towards violence against women. As thousands of people are expected to attend, it is best to be prepared.

Attendees have been asked to gather at Pitch 2 between Royal Parade and Princes Park Drive. It is recommended you arrive between 5.30pm-6pm to settle in before the vigil begins at 6pm, when the lights on Pitch 2 will be turned off. The lights will come back on at the conclusion of the vigil at 6.30pm.

The vigil is intended for quiet reflection and will not include long speeches. Because of this, attendees are asked to be respectful and do what they can to assist in creating a quiet space. 

It is also recommended you bring your own candles and matches. If you do not wish to hold a candle, apps that recreate the look are also available. 

If you wish to catch the tram to the event, get on the #19 and get off at stop 16. You can attend by car, but please note that car spaces will be limited in the area.
