Gloriana

Her Majesty The Queen named the Royal Rowbarge Gloriana as a lasting legacy to mark her Diamond Jubilee. Her Majesty has asked that Gloriana be retained by Lord Sterling and the new charitable trust for Gloriana with assistance from Thames Alive and has approved the principle that Gloriana will be used to promote better use of the Thames.

Gloriana events manager, Malcolm Knight, is coming to the Kingston Society, to tell us more about the inspiration behind the building of the Gloriana. This is particularly appropriate as the Royal Borough has most appropriately stepped forward to offer a berth on the Thames near Canbury Gardens for the barge.
