"It is with much regret that, for the second year running, the Ceremony of the Keys Parade has been cancelled."

The Office of the Governor has issued a statement explaining that this is owing to the Royal Gibraltar Regiment’s ongoing operational commitment in Bahrain which draws heavily on the Regiment’s personnel.

The related, but separate, Ceremony of the Keys Reception to be held in the Convent on the same evening will, however, still go ahead. This event will commence at 7pm on Thursday 27th September for those invited to attend by His Excellency the Governor.

His Excellency the Governor and the Commander British Forces would like to apologise to the Guests and Members of the Public who were looking forward to attending the Parade.
