On this Day in 1833

King's Birthday Celebrations, 1833

"Being his majesty's birthday, it was ushered in by the ringing of bells and the firing of cannon. The Newcastle troop of dismounted cavalry mustered at the parade ground, and marched to the Sandhill, where they fired a feu de joie, they were afterwards presented with wine by the mayor and magistrates to drink his majesty's health. The Scotch Greys and artillery stationed at the barracks were reviewed on the moor, and the day passed off with the usual demonstrations of joy. In the other towns round about similar expressions of loyalty were manifested." 28th May 1833. 

From: T Fordyce, J. Sykes. Local records; or, Historical register of remarkable events which have occurred in Northumberland and Durham, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and Berwick-upon-Tweed..., published 1867
