Queen’s House Hosts Summer Fete

November 13, 1906 ·

On August 3rd, the Queen’s House presented a Summer fete at Her Majesty’s Greenwich residence. The event was part of an exhibition to showcase many of the inventions created to win the Longitude Prize.

Guests were welcomed to the house by two current residents, Lady Frobisher Pilbeam – Queen’s Emissary to Science, and Tinku Ranbir – wife of Chan Ranbir, Head of Special Projects at the Dept for the Advancement of Sciences.

Inventors showcasing their work, and competing for the £20,000 prize were Herr Doktor, Emilly Ladybird, Citizen Gryffdawg, and Doctor Geof.

Many of the people who attended the event, claimed to witness strange phenomena around the House. Some believed it was a presence that moved around the residence, and that it didn’t seem sinister. The event climaxed with a musical performance by Sunday Driver.
