Beacon to be lit to mark The Queen's 90th birthday

LIVERPOOL is to light a beacon to pay tribute to Her Majesty The Queen on her 90th birthday. A service will take place behind the Town Hall, at 7:30pm, on Thursday, 21 April 2016, attended by Lord Mayor, Councillor Tony Concepcion, the Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside, Dame Lorna Muirhead and dozens of Sea Cadets.

During the event, a special message from His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales, paying tribute to Her Majesty, will be read out. The event will be followed by a rendition of the National Anthem by the City's singer in residence, Danielle Thomas. The beacon is one of over 1,000 being lit throughout the UK and the Commonwealth to mark Her Majesty's birthday.

Lord Mayor, Councillor Tony Concepcion, said:- "Liverpool has had the privilege of hosting visits from Her Majesty on many occasions during her time as Head of State, and we know from the huge numbers that turn out to see her that she is held in high regard and with huge affection and respect by many of our citizens. It is right and proper that we mark this significant milestone in her life, and I think it is particularly fitting that we are holding this event at the Town Hall given that it is a building she has visited several times since her ascension to the throne in 1953."

Following the lighting of the beacon, it will be placed on Exchange Flags and remain lit until 9pm for people to film and photograph if they wish.
