Beacon to light up luxury hotel
THE Jubilee Beacon will blaze through the grounds of the Beaumont Estate Hotel and the public are welcome to attend the party.
The first beacons to be lit on Monday will be at 10pm by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, followed by others around country before The Queen lights one in central London at 10.30pm.
The beacon at the 400-bedroom hotel, off Burfield Road, in Old Windsor will be lit at 10.26pm, but a barbecue is being held from 8pm.
Julie Hammond, the hotel's general manager, said: "It's a great honour to have been selected as an official Jubilee Beacon location and a wonderful opportunity to congratulate Her Majesty on 60 glorious years on the throne.
"Queen Elizabeth first visited Beaumont Estate in May of 1961 in celebration of the Beaumont Jesuits Boarding School's Centenary and we are very pleased to be lighting this beacon in her honour."
