Geldards supports the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in Nottingham
Geldards is proud to support the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in Nottingham this June. As one of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations organised by Nottingham City Council, Geldards is sponsoring a large format open-air photographic exhibition ‘70 Glorious Years – The Queen in Nottingham’ which will be on display in Old Market Square, Nottingham from 1st – 9th June.
The collection of 22 images celebrating Her Majesty’s reign, were curated from photographs sourced from the Nottinghamshire Archives. As well as showing the Queen’s visits to Nottingham over the last 70 years, from the Coronation tour in 1955 through to her most recent visit for the Diamond Jubilee in 2012, the images show how Nottingham people have celebrated royal occasions over the years.
Paul Southby, Partner, Geldards & High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire commented:
“Geldards is delighted to be supporting this wonderful photographic exhibition celebrating the Queen’s 70 Glorious Years. What a superb retrospective on Her Majesty’s visits to Nottingham during her reign! We hope that many people will visit Old Market Square over the Platinum Jubilee weekend to enjoy the exhibition.”
Councillor Pavlos Kotsonis, Portfolio Holder for Leisure, Culture and Planning at Nottingham City Council said:
“The pictures have been collected from a range of partners and experts including Nottingham City Archives, Nottingham Local Studies Library, Picture Nottingham, Inspire Picture Archive, University of Nottingham Manuscripts and Special Collections, Motorpoint Arena and National Ice Centre, as well as Boots, and the Nottingham Post. We would like to thank all the partners that have supported us with pictures from their archives along with their expertise, and particular thanks must go to Geldards for kindly sponsoring this exhibition.”
