Celebrating the Queens reign...

The occasion of the Queen becoming the longest serving British Monarch will be celebrated with an afternoon of activities followed by a parade in Bury St Edmunds early next month. At 5.30pm on 9 September, Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest reigning British Monarch, passing the 23,226 days set by Queen Victoria.

 

To mark the day, an afternoon of family activities including Battlestations laser combat, bungee trampolines, and the chance to experience life in the saddle on a British Racing School simulator, will be taking place on Angel Hill from 2.30pm to 7.30pm. There will also be an opportunity to have a look around a fire engine, Aston Martin and Jaguar cars on display, while the Stagecoach theatre school will be performing.

 

The family events have been organised by 6 Regiment Army Air Corps (6 Regt AAC).

 

The Mayor of St Edmundsbury Cllr Patrick Chung will welcome The Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk Lady Euston and other civic leaders to a raise a toast to the Queen at a special reception. This will be followed by a Sunset Parade, led by 6 Regiment Army Air Corps (6 Regt AAC) and RAF Honington, at 6.30pm. The parade will be accompanied by music from The Band of The Royal Engineers.

 

Angel Hill will be closed from 6pm on 8 September while the road between Mustow Street and Churchgate Street will be closed from 9am on the 9 September until 9pm the same evening.
