The royal celebration will be held at the Court House ballroom on June 11 and all town residents are invited to take up a place and mark the day.

Cllr Christine Cross, who will take over the chains of honour this month, said any resident turning 90 this year is invited as a special guest, and could qualify for a free place.

Cllr Cross said: “We are delighted to bring this to the people of Warwick, and we hope everyone can celebrate with us. We would like to extend this to anyone who shares their 90th year with our Queen so it is an extra special occasion for everybody.”

The town tea party will include entertainment from young actress and mezzo-soprano Imogen Parker, who developed her love for singing and dancing while living in Leamington and Warwick.

Imogen, who performs with the Fourth Monkey Theatre Company, received a grant from Warwick Apprenticing Charities to support her training and will take guests through songs from the musicals in each decade of the Queen’s reign.

The day will include a selection of sandwiches, cakes, and drinks, and tickets are £15 per person.

Contact Sarah Acklam at Warwick Town Council on 411694 or via [email protected] to book a place.

Those turning 90 this year can submit their details to the office and the first ten will be given a free place with a guest of their choice.
