The Queen's 90th Birthday Beacon
Thu 21 April 2016, 18:30 – 20:00 BST
Thursday 21 April 2016 marks the Queen's 90th birthday. In celebration beacons will be lit all over the country. His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales will invite Her Majesty the Queen to light the Principle Beacon at Windsor Castle and across the country over 1,000 beacons will be lit to celebrate this landmark birthday including our celebration at M Shed.
There will be access to the museum from the cafe from 6.30pm giving you access to life gallery, as well as a display of the Queen's previous visits. Alongside this there will be music and cake leading on to a few words from HM Lord-Lieutenant Mary Prior and the lighting of the beacon at 7.30pm.
We look forward to seeing you on this very special occasion!
