As part of the national celebrations, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is lighting a beacon to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th Birthday at Headland, Portstewart on Thursday 21st April. Throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK overseas territories beacons will be lit to celebrate this landmark birthday.
Entertainment will commence from 7pm, with the lighting of the Beacon at 8.30pm. Local running clubs will be doing a relay from each of the four legacy areas converging at Portstewart for the final leg. The Sea Cadets will also be providing a guard of honour. Causeway Archers display team will shoot 9 flaming arrows for the lighting of the beacon – one for each decade.
Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council said, “There is a long standing tradition of celebrating royal occasions with lighting of beacons and it is marvellous to be able to celebrate The Queens 90th birthday in this unique way. It is an opportunity for local communities throughout the Borough to celebrate this important milestone in The Queens’ life.”
