The Queen is set to visit the borough for an event to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee in May.

Bromley has been selected to host the momentous event as part of south London’s Jubilee celebrations.

Residents and visitors will be able to see Her Majesty and The Duke of Edinburgh as they visit the borough for a special event to commemorate the Queen’s 60 years on the throne.

The visit will take place on Tuesday May 15 May 2012 as part of a regional tour.

Leader of Bromley Council Stephen Carr: “We are delighted and honoured that the Queen will be visiting Bromley and look forward to showcasing what our borough has to offer.

“As one of only three south London boroughs to host a visit, we are keen to play our part and pay tribute to an extraordinary monarch.

“This year is an exciting year for Bromley and such a special event will make it even more memorable.”

The Queen visited the borough in 1986 to open Bromley Civic Centre and to visit Crystal Palace during her Golden Jubilee celebrations.

More details about the event will be released over the coming months.
