Gedling borough residents will celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday at a special beacon lighting ceremony later this month.
The beacon will be lit on the top of Gedling Country Park on Thursday, April 21. The event will begin at 6.30pm with the beacon being lit at 7.30pm. Entertainment will be provided by Carlton Brass and refreshments will also be available.
The council will be joining over 1,000 sites lighting beacons across the UK as part of the landmark birthday celebrations. The lighting of the beacon is a long and unbroken tradition to celebrate Royal jubilees, weddings, coronations and special birthdays.
Anyone attending the event is advised to bring suitable clothing and torches as the park will get dark when the event finishes at 8.30pm.
Parking is limited on Spring Lane and Lambley Lane so people are advised to travel to the event by foot or by public transport.
