On Tuesday (May 15), Herts Inclusive Theatre’s Artistic Director, Caroline Stevens and Producer, Emma Harrington attended Her Majesty the Queen’s garden party at Buckingham Palace for afternoon tea.
They were nominated by Stuart Lewis, one of the Deputy Lord Lieutenants of Hertfordshire for their hard work and contribution to the local community.
They had an inspiring day and very much enjoyed visiting the historic palace where upon entering, they walked through some of the Palace’s ground floor rooms.
They had the opportunity to see the Queen arrive, announced by the National Anthem, along with other members of the royal family including The Duke of York, The Earl and Countess of Wessex.
Their visit was spent having afternoon tea, enjoying music from two military bands and meeting people from other organisations who were also nominated for their charitable work.
They wandered around the stunning grounds and palace garden which covers almost 40 acres including a three acre lake.
Caroline and Emma were delighted to attend and pleased to be able to represent Herts Inclusive Theatre at Buckingham Palace.
Caroline said of the day, ‘’It was such a memorable day out, one that will go down in our memories forever. Being recognised in this way for our work after almost 10 years working for the organisation was such a lovely reward.”
