Queen’s Birthday Party in Bishkek
This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government
Celebration of the eighty-eighth birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
In June 2014 Her Majesty’s Ambassador to the Kyrgyz Republic, Ms Judith Farnworth, will host the “Queen’s Birthday Party” - a celebration of the eighty-eighth birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The event will be proudly supported by mining company Robust Resources Limited, Tealam Limited - official distributor of Ahmad Tea Company and Spark Design & Communication.
Her Majesty’s official birthday, which by tradition always falls on a Saturday in June, is marked in the United Kingdom by the Birthday Parade (also known as Trooping the Colour) at Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall, London. In British Embassies and High Commissions across our overseas network the occasion is celebrated with the hosting of Queen’s Birthday Parties. The Queen’s actual birthday, on 21 April, is celebrated privately.
This year will mark the third Queen’s Birthday Party in Kyrgyzstan since the British Embassy Bishkek was opened in late 2011.
