This year the Queen’s Birthday Party will be held at Government House on Thursday, 9 June between 6 and 8 pm. The Governor and Mrs Fergusson invite anyone interested in attending this event to complete the online entry form, the link for which can be found on the Government House website and FaceBook page. The link will be active from noon on Tuesday, 19 April until noon on Monday, 2 May 2016.
Government House first opened up the process for obtaining an invitation to the Queen’s Birthday Party last year and the enthusiastic response received from the general public was a deciding factor in the return of the process for this year’s event.
The Governor said: “Last year we decided to open up the Queen’s Birthday Party to a far wider range of the community than in previous years. Those who were successful in their applications were excited to have the opportunity to attend the Queen’s Birthday Party and we were very pleased to be able to share this special event with them.
We are again inviting anyone who would like to attend this year’s Queen's Birthday Party to complete the online entry form. Sadly, the numbers can’t be unlimited but we shall make a good proportion of invitations available to those applying. By tradition, a number of senior public officers and members of the Houses of the Legislature and Judiciary are invited. This will be an occasion to enjoy the Gardens of Government House, and the Band of the Bermuda Regiment
This year’s Queen’s Birthday Party will not only celebrate the 90th birthday of Her Majesty The Queen but also be special for my wife and me as it will be our last in Bermuda.”
