{ What's on this week }

A ROYAL RIVER SALUTE
Wednesday 9 September
12pm-12.30pm on River Thames (Tower Bridge to Westminster)
At midday a flotilla of historic vessels, leisure cruisers
and passenger boats will take part in a procession on the
River Thames to mark the day on which Queen Elizabeth II
becomes the longest reigning monarch in British history.
This date will mark the 63 years and 216 days since The
Queen came to the throne. The procession will feature
vessels such as Havengore and Gloriana, which participated
in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee River Pageant in 2012, as
well as the fireboat, Massey Shaw. It will begin east of
Tower Bridge at midday, with the vessels sounding their
horns for one minute. Tower Bridge will be raised in salute
and as the procession passes by HMS Belfast, a four gun
salute will sound and Massey Shaw will shoot jets of water
into the air. The procession will end approximately 30
minutes later outside the Houses of Parliament with a final
fanfare and 'three cheers'.
