Lancaster Priory invites people
to celebrate the Royal Wedding in style
For all those who have not received an invitation to the wedding of HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton on 29th April, there is still an opportunity to celebrate this special occasion in royal style at Lancaster Priory.
To mark this significant occasion, the marriage of the future Sovereign and Duke of Lancaster, the Priory will be showing the Royal Wedding on a big screen in the church’s nave, and inviting the people of Lancaster to don their wedding finery, and to take part in the royal celebrations.
Tickets will cost £7.50, including a seat in the Nave, and a buffet lunch with a celebration drink, and they will be available direct from the Priory (Tel: 65338), or online from the Priory’s website: www.lancasterpriory.org
Lancaster Priory has received many visits from members of the Royal Family through its long history, and HM The Queen, Duke of Lancaster last visited the Priory in 1999, to mark the 600th anniversary of the Duchy of Lancaster being vested in the Sovereign.
On special occasions such as the Queen’s Birthday, the Priory is one of the very few places in England which is commanded to fly the Royal Banner of HM The Queen, Duke of Lancaster from the flagpole on its tower, and this famous banner with its “Three Lions” will be proudly flown over the city to mark this very special royal occasion.
Note to Editors:
Lancaster Priory is the Civic Church for the City of Lancaster.
A church has existed on this site since the 7th Century.
