1977 Royal Silver Jubilee - Queen Elizabeth II
In 1977 The Queen's Silver Jubilee was marked with celebrations at every level throughout the country and Commonwealth.

The actual anniversary of The Queen's accession on 6 February 1952 was commemorated in church services throughout that month. The Queen spent the anniversary weekend at Windsor with her family and the full jubilee celebrations began in the summer of 1977.

On 4 May at the Palace of Westminster both Houses of Parliament presented loyal addresses to The Queen, who in her reply stressed that the keynote of the jubilee was to be the unity of the nation.

The climax of the national celebrations came in early June. On the evening of Monday 6 June, The Queen lit a bonfire beacon at Windsor which started a chain of beacons across the country. On Tuesday 7 June, vast crowds saw The Queen drive in the Gold State Coach to St Paul's Cathedral for a Service of Thanksgiving attended by heads of state from around the world and former prime ministers of the UK.

Charles Wells acquired a brewery, built in Horne Lane, Bedford in 1816, in 1875. Moved to their current location in 1976. The brewery is the largest family owned brewery in Britain. Announced in May 2006 that production would transfer to a new company, of which a 60% share will be owned, formed by a merger with Young's to become Wells & Young's Brewing Co Ltd. Wells will continue as a pub group.
