A WOMAN from Holyhead is to join in with Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June with a cinema screening of a musical she helped create.

Marry Parry, who will be 86 on April 18, is to the show a production of "In a Golden Coach" from 2012, when the queen celebrated 60 years on the British throne, at the Ucheldre Centre in Holyhead on Sunday, June 5.

The musical, which was also performed at the same venue 10 years ago, showcases the popular tunes of the 1950s, and even includes a few kings and queens itself.

Starting at 7pm, tickets cost £8 each, with proceeds going to St David’s Hospice, which provides palliative care to patients across North Wales, and Ysbyty Penrhos Stanley in Holyhead.

Mary was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in November 2009 for her for performing arts, theatre and charity work, which has seen her raise almost £250,000.

She said has been “treading the boards for 76 years, since 1946 aged 10 with the late Mrs Charles Hughes".

Mary added: “I carried on the tradition, and formed an international Welsh dance team (Parti Dawns Lan Mor), and the Mary Parry Musical Players.

“I have been producing and directing my own shows now for 32 years, from which we have donated thousands of pounds to charity.

“We have a very busy diary, and I’ll keep on going as long as I can!”
