Shrewsbury will play host to Queen Camilla this Wednesday 27th March.

Why not visit the town centre and join us all in giving her a warm Shrewsbury welcome?

Upon arrival in the late morning, Her Majesty will first visit a very special farmer’s market in the Town Square, then move on to the Flaxmill Maltings in the early afternoon.

Need a flag to wave? Shrewsbury Duck Store in The Darwin Centre has you covered for flags and more flag-patterned items to help you celebrate the occasion!

Raise a glass to Her Majesty and to Shrewsbury following the visit at one of the town centre’s many historic pubs!
