A beacon will be lit at a Grantham park to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday.

Dysart Park will host the event that will acknowledge the monarch’s milestone on Thursday, April 21, in parallel with hundreds of similar events across the UK.

The event will be co-ordinated by South Kesteven District Council, Dysart Park Action Group and Grantham Rotary Club, with the beacon lit at 8.30pm.

The Queen, accompanied by The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, will light the Principal Beacon at Windsor Castle on the same evening.

The event follows similar events when Her Majesty The Queen has lit a Principal Beacon to start celebrations on her Silver Jubilee, 50th anniversary of VE Day, Beacons for the Millennium, Golden Jubilee, The Trafalgar Weekend Beacons, The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
