90 Years in 90 seconds - what does the Queen mean to you?

Every video submitted will be archived by Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service supported by Media Archive Central England (MACE), this ensures your contribution can be seen and heard for generations to come.
And when you have made your film please encourage as many friends and family to do the same!
