Join in the Jubilee celebrations in Harrow

With just days to go until the Queen’s visit to Harrow, local residents are being encouraged to join in the celebrations and line the route for her arrival and departure.

As part of the Diamond Jubilee regional tour Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh, are visiting Harrow next week.

The visit will be to the UK’s first Hindu state school, Krishna Avanti, in Edgware.

And we can now announce that The Queen is expected to arrive in Harrow at approximately 2.45pm on Thursday 29th March. The Royal car will drive slowly down Camrose Avenue from the Edgware Road, so that residents can catch a glimpse of Her Majesty and His Royal Highness while waving them into the local school.

Harrow residents are being invited to line the avenue between the school and the Edgware Road from lunchtime onwards where they can cheer Her Majesty’s arrival and watch some of the action on big screens outside the venue.

Cllr Bill Stephenson, Leader of Harrow Council, said:

“We want all of our residents to have the opportunity to be involved in this historic visit. In order to give greater access to the wider community there will be a number of big screens outside the school to keep spectators up-to-date with what is happening. I would say to Harrow residents, come and join in the celebrations, wave the Queen into the borough and give her a welcome she will never forget.”

Organised by Harrow Council in partnership with schools and community organisations from across Harrow, the event will feature music, dance and a specially commissioned ’60 Faces’ photography exhibition.

As part of the preparations for the visit, Camrose Avenue in Edgware will be closed to traffic from 11am. Residents who want to take part in the public celebrations and watch some of the visit from the big screens are advised that there will be no parking in the area. Buses will be re-directed via Mollison Way.
