There will be a royal occasion gracing the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre stage with a champagne high tea to celebrate the life of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
A Royal Remembrance is a special event that will commemorate the Queen’s life, and her visit to the Bundaberg Region 68 years ago.
Attendees will also have the chance to look back at rare photos and reminisce with some of the residents who were lucky enough to be there on the day the Queen captured Bundaberg’s heart.
Guest speakers and long-time locals Bettina Shearer and Barry Jacobsen will share their memories of the Queen’s visit at the not-to-be-missed royal affair.
Organising A Royal Remembrance, Moncrieff Entertainment Centre’s Paul Dellit and Trevor Green are delighted to share the once in a lifetime event with the local community.
“Impeccable bellboys will be dressed in their finest attire to serve our guests, and fresh flowers will adorn each table in this special event,” Trevor said.
“The entire set-up will mimic a high tea from the Book of Etiquette, which I have been studying profusely.
“Everything will be handmade for a right royal experience!”
Paul said entertainment would be provided by a special guest pianist on the magnificent Steinway grand piano, and most importantly the event would support a worthy cause.
“Guests of A Royal Remembrance will be treated to a delectable high tea on the Moncrieff stage, with a menu featuring a selection of hand-made gourmet treats, and they will be served with champagne on arrival, and bottomless tea and coffee throughout,” Paul said.
“It will be a very posh event, that will definitely be one to remember for years to come.”
Queen Elizabeth II passed away in September after serving as the longest-reigning monarch of the Commonwealth.
During her first royal tour of Australia in March 1954, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was the only reigning monarch to visit Queensland. She was accompanied by her husband His Royal Highness Prince Phillip, The Duke of Edinburgh.
Queen Elizabeth captured the hearts of the Bundaberg people, who had been preparing for the special occasion for almost a year, when she visited Bundaberg on Thursday 11 March 1954.
Funds raised at A Royal Remembrance will benefit the Mayor’s Christmas Cheer Appeal, with proceeds going to provide hampers for local charities to distribute to families in need this Christmas.
The Royal Remembrance High Tea will take place on Saturday 22 October from 10.30 am with tickets available at $75 each. Click here to purchase.
