The Queen's birthday celebrations

HRH Birthday book

From 1 June to 11 June 2016 Heathrow celebrates HRH: the Queen’s 90th Birthday. 

To help commemorate this special occasion Heathrow has a number of events in each of the terminals. Passengers (and family too) will be invited to sign a message book - which will be delivered to Buckingham palace - as part of the celebrations. 

Lookout for the giant replicas of the Queen's favourite handbag, which will be displayed in arrival areas in each of the Terminals that will lead you to the vintage book signing desks manned by our Passenger Ambassador Team from 06.00 to 21.00.

As well as this the Passenger Ambassador Team will be in our Terminals handing out mini-flags (pictured above) as well as make-your-own crowns for the kids.*

Dave Hanson

After touring with Mumford and Sons and Sheryl Crow as well as performing on the Tonight Show, Dave Hanson decided to leave his successful band The Dunwells to pursue his dream of making his own music. Spending the last 5 years touring across America provided Dave with inspiration to write and create his new album which has a laid back, rootsy vibe influenced by his love of JJ Cale, Dire Straits and The Black Keys. Working with producer Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam, David Bowie), Hanson has succeeded in making an album of material that sounds warm and familiar but with a modern production value. Hanson’s easy going persona translates into his music which has a sophisticated and effortless feel – “Somebody once told me – Dave you’re so laid back, you’re Almost Horizontal!”

Encouraged strongly by her choir teacher, she began giving a career in music serious thought. After graduation, she picked up the guitar and focused on writing songs. “It was a huge challenge at first, but somehow it all came together my last year of college.”

After a nearly 10-year hiatus, Selena has released her latest single “Waiting in Vain,” a reimagined version of Bob Marley’s classic.

Wrenne - 12 June at 11.00


An "overnight" multiple-year success story, raised in Utah and the Mormon Church, she left for Europe as a 22-year-old on a whim of her imagination with a head full of questions and a heart open to the answers. Arrived in London with a guitar, 300 bucks and a phone number. She worked through survival, started to belong, became British. Honing her skills as a writer and vocalist, she grafted and crafted. Wrenne discovered her true voice and intent, spoke up and recognized who was family amongst the host of talented helpers, writers and producers along the way. Those collaborations comprise the album.
