WORCESTER residents who were born in the same year as HM The Queen are being invited to a tea party being held in honour of the monarch’s landmark birthday.

The search is launched today (Monday) for people across Worcestershire who were born in the same year as HM The Queen – 1926.

Her Majesty is celebrating her 90th birthday this year and to mark the event her local representative, the Lord-Lieutenant of Worcestershire, and the Mayor of Worcester are hosting Tea for The Queen, a party for county residents who will also be turning 90 this year.

Marks and Spencer are kindly sponsoring this right royal event, which will be held in Worcestershire’s county town at Worcester Guildhall on Saturday, June 11 – the date of The Queen’s official birthday.

Applications for Tea for The Queen tickets are open from today.

Lord-Lieutenant of Worcestershire, Lt Col Patrick Holcroft, said: “The Queen’s 90th birthday is an occasion for national celebration.

“I am delighted to be jointly hosting Tea for The Queen, as it will give Worcestershire people who are reaching the same milestone as Her Majesty the chance to join the celebrations of her remarkable reign.

“It will be a great pleasure to spend the afternoon in their company and hear their stories of the last nine decades,” he added.

Current Mayor of Worcester, Coun Roger Knight, added: “Everyone born in 1926 has lived through remarkable times alongside The Queen, from the Second World War to her coronation and beyond.

“Tea for The Queen will give local people a chance to relive the experiences they have shared with Her Majesty.”

Application forms for the event are available online at and from The Hive, St John’s Library and Warndon Library.

Forms need to be completed by Friday, May 6 to Tea Party for The Queen, Guldhall, High Street, Worcester WR1 2EY.

They can also be emailed to [email protected].
