Public invited to celebrate Queen’s birthday
The public was today invited to attend a garden party at Government House to mark the Queen’s birthday and Platinum Jubilee.
The party will be open to the public for the first time since 2019 after the relaxation of Covid-19 health regulations.
Rena Lalgie, the Governor, said: “Government House first opened up the process for obtaining an invitation to the Queen’s Birthday Party in 2015 and this continued for the next few years due to the enthusiastic response received from those who applied for tickets and attended.
“Following the relaxation of the public health regulations, the reception will once again be opened to general admittance. We were unable to open the Queen’s Birthday Party to the public in 2020 and 2021 due to the strict public health regulations in place at the time because of the pandemic.
“My family and I are thrilled to once again be opening attendance at the Queen’s Birthday Party to the general public and very much look forward to welcoming you to Government House.
“2022 is a very special year as we will not only be celebrating Her Majesty’s 96th Birthday but we will also be marking her Platinum Jubilee representing 70 years on the throne.”
Ms Lalgie said people who wanted an invitation should fill out the online questionnaire.
She added: “Sadly, the numbers can’t be unlimited but we shall make as many of the invitations available as possible to those applying.”
The celebration will be held on June 2 between 6pm and 8pm.
Anyone who wants to attend should complete the form here.
The link will be active until April 29.
