For first time since their Jubilee tour in 1977, HRH Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh travelled by the Royal Train to Venue Cymru event centre in Llandudno as part of their tour of North Wales.
The Queen visited Venue Cymru, which has recently expanded to include purpose-built event facilities equipped to handle up to 5,000 delegates, to thank volunteers from across Conwy and Denbighshire.
“It was a great honour to welcome the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh to our venue,” says the Venue Cymru GM Sarah Ecob. “We were delighted to be chosen to host this very prestigious event and flattered by the excellent feedback we received.”
The Queen’s tour also included Welshpool, Bangor and Caernarfon, where she saw Prince Charles invested as Prince of Wales in Caernarfon Castle in 1969.
Before leaving Venue Cymru to board the Royal Train at Llandudno station, The Queen unveiled a commemorative plaque in front of thousands of locals and signed the Venue Cymru guestbook.
