We are all thoroughly impressed by our amazing 90 years old Queen who in April celebrated her "real" 90th Birthday with, for Her, a relatively quiet day! (See our article and photos) 

But now it's the turn of the People to celebrate on Her behalf at garden parties all around the country on Sunday 12 June. And there’s plenty going on in the New Forest. – keep up to date with our events calendar (LINK)

Birthday Celebration at Elmers Court

On that Sunday there will be a really big celebratory event taking place in Lymington, to which everybody is invited.Celebration of the Queen's 90th Birthday in Lymington

It’s being held at Macdonald Elmers Court Hotel, on the Queen Mary Lawn.

It’s to celebrate not only the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II but also, it’s the 90th anniversary of the Lymington Royal British Legion.

By the way we’ve also discovered that this year is also the 90th birthday of Winnie the Pooh. Who reputedly was once upon a time introduced personally to the Queen.

Community event for all the family

This Birthday Celebration promises to be a great event for the whole community to enjoy in the fabulous grounds of Elmers Court which overlooks the scenic views of the Solent.

It’s free - and bring a picnic

There is no entry fee, and plenty of free parking.

We are all invited to bring our own picnics to enjoy on the Queens Mary Lawn, whilst being entertained with music from the Lymington Town Band and Priestland School Steel Band.


Lots of fun for all the family


Children's rides, bouncy castles, facepainting, open playground, go-kart rides for young children, arts & crafts, afternoon cream teas, hog roast, Pimms & Ginger Beer Tent, children's painting tent, raffle, family entertainment, children amusements and trampoline, Static Falconry display... basically, loads for all the family to enjoy.


17th Port & Maritime Regiment RLC

There will also be a special appearance by the 17th Port & Maritime Rgt Royal Logistic Corps which promises an educational and interesting experience. 17 Port & Maritime Regiment RLC are based at Marchwood. The unit provides the UK Armed Forces' only specialist Port & Maritime, Vehicle Support Specialist, Operational Hygiene, and Mortuary Affairs capabilities, and deploys regularly in support of operations and exercises around the world, including in support of the Royal Marines.

A special event to celebrate our Queen

The organisers hope there will be a massive turn out for this very special event, to celebrate first and foremost the longevity of a very special lady whom we hold in such high esteem.
