THE Queen will unveil a commemorative tapesty when she visits Krishna-Avanti Primary School on the first day of her Diamond Jubilee tour.

It was confirmed in a letter to parents last week that the school in Camrose Avenue, which was Britain’s first state-funded Hindu primary school, has been chosen to welcome Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh on the afternoon of Thursday March 29 for a “community spectacular” stage show.

Nitesh Gor, chairman of governors, said: “We are delighted and privileged to host The Queen’s visit to Harrow and we look forward to working with the whole community to make it a truly memorable day.

“Her Majesty will also be unveiling a specially commissioned tapestry ensuring we have a permanent reminder of our place in the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.”

The royal couple will enjoy performances from a range of local dance and music groups, including youngsters from Canons High School and Srishti School of Dance, as well as the debut of a special fanfare written for her 60 years on the throne by former Harrow High pupil Bryan Kesselman.

It will be sung by a choir comprising singers from a range of different vocal groups brought together by conductor and fellow former Harrow High pupil Philip Barnett, who runs the local Tonic choir with Mr Kesselman.

Mr Barnett said: “We are overwhelmed to be involved in this once in a lifetime opportunity. It is an extraordinary honour to be able to conduct our music in front of Her Majesty, and we are delighted that we have been asked to include parts of the music Bryan composed for the Harrow High School centenary celebrations too.

“The fact that representatives from all ten Harrow choirs are collaborating is magical and a great development for music in Harrow.

“There will be 110 adults singing, plus children, and everybody is working together in a great example of the borough’s unity.”

Councillor Bill Stephenson (Labour), leader of Harrow Council, said: “Across Harrow schools, community groups and the council are busy preparing for this historic occasion.

“It is a real honour that The Queen chose to visit Harrow and the event will be an exciting, memorable way to celebrate London’s diversity.”

The Queen – who last graced the borough in 2004 – will visit also Waltham Forest Council for a celebratory reception and lunch and Redbridge borough in east London on March 29 although no timings have officially been released.

Praghosa dasa: We are often asked by devotees who are preaching in the UK about the steps required to become an official ISKCON centre. This question is of course a source of great inspiration to us as it would be glorious to have an ISKCON centre in every town and village of the UK! Therefore […]
