AMS at Queen's 90th Birthday
[22/06/16] Vicky Pigg, Director of Sales and Marketing at Analox Military Systems was lucky enough to attend the Queen's 90th Birthday Celebrations in May.
Vicky was invited to the event after AMS were selected to appear in an official commemorative album which celebrates the life and reign of The Queen and showcases a selection of organisations in the UK and Commonwealth, or with strong ties to Britain.
The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration took place from 12 to 15 May in Home Park, Windsor Castle, and the album was presented as a gift to VVIP and VIP guests at each of the four evenings of this celebration.
Copies of the book were also distributed to key figures and organisations around the world including heads of state, ambassadors and leaders of industry.
On each evening of The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration, 900 horses and more than 1,500 people from around the world participated in a 90-minute show to celebrate The Queen’s life.
The show took audiences from The Queen’s birth, through the Second World War, her marriage, her coronation and a reign of more than 60 years.
Performers came from countries including Oman, Chile, New Zealand, Canada, Fiji, Australia, Azerbaijan and the UK. There was also representation from the military including The Queen’s Mounted Troops and more than 100 pipers.
Vicky was invited to the last day of the event, which was also attended by the Queen.
The final performance was broadcast live on television and featured tv duo Ant and Dec, television presenter Alan Titchmarsh and singer Katherine Jenkins.
To coincide with this event, and celebrate AMS being featured in the official commemorative album, Analox hosted a family fun day for all its staff and their families on 15 May.
Over a hundred people attended the event, which featured a two lane inflatable bungee run, surf simulator, circus workshops, and a range of bouncy activity zones.
