Here at the Archives Centre we are shaping up to join in the forthcoming Diamond Jubilee celebrations. With a fantastic selection of visual images we recapture some of the momentous occasions in HM The Queen’s life, including her marriage, coronation and royal engagements. We also take a look back at royal tradition and heritage from Queen Victoria to King George VI.
Original items on display include a Britains Historical Series 1953 coronation carriage and souvenir programmes for royal occasions.
The exhibition is on show in the Archives Centre meeting room as follows:
30 May – 9 June 2012
Wednesdays and Thursdays 10.00am – 7.00pm
Fridays and Saturdays 10.00am – 5.00pm
Closed Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays
The exhibition is a wonderful accompaniment to the City’s celebrations and gives viewers an opportunity to see how we celebrate our royal family at local and national level.
