Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Ball
Saturday, June 4, 2022 - 18:30
On 6th February this year Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth. To celebrate this unprecedented anniversary, BritCham hosted the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Ball on 4 June 2022. In the best traditions of BritCham Latvia, this was a black-tie seated dinner that included British themed menu, speeches, dances and other surprises throughout the evening. We were excited to welcome 180 members and friends to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and we hope that everyone enjoyed the event and were happy to be a part of this wonderful and truly unique celebration.
Thanks to our guests generosity, we managed to raise whopping 9000 EUR for BritCham Charity Fund, which is an absolute record – thank you to every single person who contributed to our charity raffle – with your support we will be able to continue our charitable work, supporting children in need.
This event couldn’t have happened without help of our wonderful supporters – the amazing Radisson Blu Daugava Hotel staff for their hard work before and during the event, special thank you to their Chef Andrej Kiljgishov for the delicious British menu!
