Commonwealth Festival Of Music
Sunday, 11 March 2012 10:27
The Commonwealth Carnival of Music is part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations for HM The Queen. Countries from the Commonwealth who will be participating in the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod this July have been invited to join in this celebration, with singers, bands and other performers taking part in what will be an outstanding event.
This celebration in music and song will be held in Westminster Hall of the UK Parliament on Monday, 2 July 2012. Each part of the United Kingdom is invited to be represented in the audience.
The Lord Lieutenant for Stirling & Falkirk, Mrs Marjory McLachlan, would like to invite nominations of people from across the Stirling and Falkirk areas to attend the Commonwealth Carnival of Music - specifically, nominations of young performers, aged between 16 and 21, and of any “unsung local hero” who has made a real contribution to the community, which has not otherwise been recognised. Nominees can be accompanied by a parent or friend – with a total of 4 people attending. As there are only 4 places allocated to this area, a ballot
will be held for tickets.
If you wish to nominate someone, please send the names and addresses to Mrs Jean Houston, Clerk to the Lieutenancy, c/o Stirling Council, Viewforth, Stirling FK8 2ET by Friday, 20 April 2012. The ballot will be held on 25 April.
Any queries should be directed to Mrs Houston, whose telephone number is 01786 443216.
