Abbeygate gets in the mood for Jubilee celebrations

The Abbeygate Cinema, in Bury St Edmunds, is getting in the mood for the national Jubilee celebrations with a special screening of “The Queen’s Corgi” and a live broadcast of “Trooping the Colour”.

The animated film is being shown on June 4 and 5 and tells the story of Rex, the Queen’s Top Dog – a spoilt little corgi who lives a life of luxury in Buckingham Palace.

But when he winds up in a London Dog’s Home, surrounded by tough strays, he must learn that to become a true top dog, you have to earn it.

And the live broadcast of “Trooping the Colour: Live from the BBC” is up on the big screen on June 2.

The spectacular ceremony remains the single national celebration of the Sovereign’s official birthday.

The 1st Battalion Irish Guards will troop their colour in the presence of the Queen and taking part will be up to 1,450 soldiers of the Household Division and the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery along with up to 400 musicians from the Massed Bands. A further 200 soldiers from the First Battalion Coldstream Guards will line The Mall for the event.
