This year's Civic Sunday service will have a Royal theme - as the city celebrates the Queen's 90th birthday.

The 158th Mayor of Wolverhampton Councillor Barry Findlay is inviting people to join him for the annual service, traditionally one of the first engagements of the new Mayoral year, when it takes place next month.

Mayor Councillor Findlay said: "Civic Sunday is an important occasion in the city's Civic calendar, and one of my first as Mayor, and I would like to extend an invitation to all members of the public to attend.

"This year we'll also be joining in the national celebrations for the Queen's 90th birthday with a service of thanksgiving which is open to people of all faiths, and of none."

The Civic Sunday service takes place at St Peter's Collegiate Church, St Peter's Square, Wolverhampton at 11am on Sunday 12 June. It will be led by the Reverend David Wright and all are welcome. Refreshments will be served at Wolverhampton Art Gallery afterwards.
