Thinking about going to market square to get a glimpse or if im lucky, say hello to the Queen with my daughter when the Queen comes to nottingham to greet the public in the square on the 13th of June. Is anyone else going?

Read about this in the Evening Post, it also said they royals will then go to Vernon Park. I wonder what's going on there as I don't expect they're just going to feed the ducks!

Theres some performances going on for them, a school near to my parents house are singing for the Family on their visit there, also registered guests are meeting the queen there, unfortunately you had to register to meet her formally so the public cant attend the visit at Vernon park, could be mistaken, but thats what im assuming from reading The Post.

They probably chose Vernon Park so that Her Maj' can catch The Tram from Slab Square. Hope she remembers her OAP pass.

But I thought OAP passes were only good for the tram if it was issued in Nottingham. Surely HM and HRH will have London ones?

May be it goes back 45 years,when the lads went up 'Buck house' to get their gongs, MBE?

Supposedly smoked a 'funny fag' in the lav'.

Refused to share with 'uncle Phil'.

I'm sure the old lady in the big hat will be well impressed with Nottingham's jubilee effort ?

The two flags at the bottom just make the whole thing look tacky. In my opinion anyways....

Im all for the queen visiting & im all for the tax money being dipped into to pay for her arrival, it doesnt happy very often at all... But they could of done a better job of it.

..This picture reminds me of how much i really dislike new market square. (Wow, alot of negi comments from myself this afternoon) I miss the fountains, even if people did put bubble bath in & jump in it!! (I used to be one of the 'goths/grebs' of market square, one of my fond memories are the foamy fountains!)

2/ Tug patrolled the square for many years, and would be horrified by the lack of bunting for such an occasion!

Ah , I misunderstood , I thought you meant he wouldn't have wanted the Queen to come !!

But I'm willing to bet it ain't finished yet !!

(I've got more flags on my house than there is on the Council house !!)

I was just wondering where the bunting was!! Would look quite good going from lampost to lampost high enough so the drunks cant nick it!! I really wanted some bunting for the front of my house, but ever where had sold out a week before & i wasnt paying £7 for fabric bunting that was all of 2ft long.
