DETAILS of the Queen's visit to Somerset have been announced.

Her Majesty will be visiting three locations during his visit to the county on Thursday, March 28.

The Queen will visit Manor Farm Stables, King’s Bruton School, and Hauser & Wirth Somerset.

It is the first visit to Avon and Somerset by Her Majesty since her visit to the county in 2012, as part of the Jubilee Tour of the UK

A spokesperson said: "Her Majesty The Queen will arrive at Castle Cary station in Somerset by Royal Train. Her Majesty will be met by the Lord Lieutenant of Somerset and receive a posy from a local schoolchild, before departing for Manor Farm Stables in Ditcheat.

"At the stables, Her Majesty will meet trainer Paul Nicholls, before visiting the yard and viewing the horses on parade.

"The Queen will also hear from representatives from The University of Bath working on research projects on equestrian sport spinal injuries and racehorse welfare.

"The Queen will then visit King’s Bruton, a coeducational school founded in 1519. To mark 500 years of the school, Her Majesty will officially open the school’s new music centre.

"During the visit to King’s Bruton, The Queen will tour the new music centre, before watching a performance by the school choir. At the end of the visit, The Queen will unveil a plaque to commemorate the opening of the music centre. Before departure, Her Majesty will also officially name a new Avon and Somerset Police horse.

"Finally, Her Majesty will visit Hauser & Wirth Somerset, a gallery and multi-purpose arts centre located at Durslade Farm.

"At the gallery, Her Majesty will meet local schoolchildren taking part in a creative workshop, as well as former artist-in-residence Catherine Goodman. Her Majesty will also view the gallery’s two current exhibitions by Catherine Goodman and Matthew Day Jackson."

Avon and Somerset Police will have precautions in place during the visit.

Somerset County Council will be putting some crowd pedestrian barriers and coning in place for the visit. No parking will be permitted in the centre of Bruton during the visit. Anyone ignoring this is at risk of having their vehicle towed away.

There may be slight delays as the Royal party moves from venues and those working and living in the area should plan accordingly.

Superintendent Rhys Hughes, police commander for the visit, said: “This is an opportunity for the people of Somerset to see Her Majesty for the second time in seven years.

“We have to be mindful of the safety of both the royal visitors and the public on such occasions, while minimising the amount of disruption for those wishing to go about their normal daily business.

“Our operation for the visit will follow well-rehearsed plans, which have involved several weeks of planning, working with partner organisations including Buckingham Palace, local agency partners and the Metropolitan Police.

“This is likely to be one of the biggest events in the Somerset area for some time and we are sure the people of Somerset will give Her Majesty a warm welcome."
