On 12 June, The Mall in London will be transformed into a giant street party for The Patron's Lunch, where the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will be joining the festivities at Buckingham Palace. The Railway community sits in the heart of all local communities, and so there will be a wide range of events to celebrate this and the Queen's birthday, all across the country at a variety of railway stations.
Head of Marketing, Clare Shufflebotham said- "What a great way to join forces with industry partners and to celebrate the success of the railways. There is so much good work taking place by Community Rail Partnerships and we're keen to add to this in 2016".
Why not support your local railway station and join a local event, or plan to visit somewhere different with CrossCountry to celebrate this momentous occasion look out for special surprises on the day if you're travelling with CrossCountry too!
