The Queen’s 90th Birthday


To celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th Birthday the Lord Lieutenant is organising a celebration on Sunday 12th June in Ripon Cathedral. The event is expected to be attended by 1,000 invited guests and the Lieutenancy is hoping to invite some very special people who reside within the Lieutenancy area which includes York, North Yorkshire and the area south of the River Tees (formerly covered by Cleveland)*.

The Lieutenancy is seeking to make the event as inclusive as possible, and to that end has decided to invite a unique group of people, but we need the help of our communities to identify them.

If your date of birth is either 21st April 1926 or 12th June 1926 (the dates of Her Majesty’s actual & official birthdays), you may apply for a free ticket for yourself and for someone to accompany you. Alternatively, do you know anyone who may be eligible to attend? Anyone with birthdays on these dates will be guaranteed an invitation to this prestigious celebration to celebrate Her Majesty’s birthday.

In addition, we will hold a draw for anyone with a 90th birthday occurring during 2016. If this applies to you and you live in the above area, then you may apply online for inclusion in the draw. Those successful will be advised and receive an invitation for themselves and someone to accompany them.

To apply for an invitation go to www.nyll.org.uk/iam90thisyear. Applications may be made on your behalf by a member of your family or by anyone else. The Lieutenancy sees this as the key event of the year and hope that a wide cross-section of our communities will be represented, including these important 90 year olds who have contributed so much throughout Her Majesty’s reign.
