Beating Retreat

08th, 09th & 10th June 2021

The Household Division Beating Retreat

Following consultation with the Government and other relevant parties, the Queen’s Official Birthday Parade, also known as Trooping the Colour, will not go ahead this year in its traditional form, now being planned to take place in Windsor.

As a consequence, BEATING RETREAT 2021 can no longer take place on the 8th, 9th and 10th of June 2021. Our ticketing partner is arranging refunds and will be in contact with everyone who has purchased tickets.

The intention is for a modified BEATING RETREAT 2021 to be held in some form at a future date during the summer. Please do monitor our website for updates:

We thank you so much for your support. We remain committed to restarting traditional state ceremonial events as soon as possible.

In the meantime, we are doing everything within our means to support the Nation's swift recovery from the pandemic.
