The Queen's Birthday Parade will be held on Saturday 11th June 2016 on Horse Guards Parade.
The Colour will be trooped by No. 7 Company Coldstream Guards.

The postal ballot for tickets to attend The Queen's Birthday Parade opens in January 2016 and closes at the end of February.

Applications to attend the Parade in the seated stands should be sent in January and February 2016 only* to:
The Brigade Major
Headquarters Household Division
Horse Guards
