Tesco stores to celebrate Queen’s 90th birthday

10 Jun 2016

Tesco is inviting people from across London and Berkshire to celebrate the Queen’s official 90th birthday by holding 1920’s themed parties across selected stores.

In a party fit for a queen, Tesco’s Regent Street Metro store will welcome jazz and swing band, The Moochers from 11am on Friday 10th June.

Inspired by the decade of the Queen’s birth, the store will be decorated in a 1920’s Gatsby style, with sequin flapper girls, black and white feather boas, bunting, and balloons.

To continue the nod to Her Majesty’s birthday, nearby Queensway Metro, and Windsor Superstore will also host in-store events on Saturday 11th June with entertainment from the band Unique Ukulele.

The stores are encouraging people from the local community to come along and join in the royal celebrations.

Martin Smith, Tesco London Convenience Director, said:

“Where better to host a royal party than these aptly named stores? We hope to see many people from the local area at these events to experience a taste of the roaring 20s. Myself and the whole team will be there dancing the foxtrot or Charleston.”

The crowning glory of the event will be a 3D corgi shaped cake; which customers will be asked to name. The customer who chooses the winning name will take home the cake and a £100 Tesco gift card.

Visitors to the store will also have the chance to indulge in some of Tesco’s finest* range, including finest* Red Velvet Cake and prosecco served in 1920’s-style champagne glasses.

 Tesco delivered over twenty finest* hampers this week to homes across the UK where residents were also celebrating their 90th birthdays. The hampers included popular finest items such as English breakfast tea, cherry scones and strawberry jam.
