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.

With a brewing history going back to 1777 and its red triangle trademark the oldest recognised trade mark in the world, Bass should be one of the treasures of the UK brewing industry. However in the 1990s a fixation with alcopops and nitrokeg beers lead to sale and closure of most of their breweries and eventually the sale of the company to Interbrew UK. Brewing of the Bass brand is still carried out at this plant, now owned by Coors Brewers Ltd.

Initially founded in 1713, it was acquired by S A Brain in 1882. A new brewery in St. Mary Street was built in 1914. Took over Crown Buckley in 1997. Following the decision by Bass to close the former Hancocks plant, it was purchased by Brain's in 1999 and production moved to the new plant during 2000.
