Regent Street Post Office - the place to be this Friday 1 October 2008

Regent Street Post Office is the place to be on Friday morning when it will be especially open from 6.45am to 8am to mark the visit of Cunard’s QE2 to Douglas Bay.

Isle of Man Post Office’s special opening of Regent Street Post Office will be for the sale of 2,000 limited edition QE2 commemorative envelopes (priced £8.50) produced to mark this grand occasion of the QE2 being the biggest vessel to ever visit the Isle of Man.

Regent Street Post Office will adopt a rather nautical theme and will be filled with the sounds of maritime music. Isle of Man Post Office encourages everyone to come and be part of the celebration and pop in for a warm drink while down on Douglas Promenade seeing the world’s most famous ocean liner.

Having the QE2 make a fleeting call to Douglas Bay will be history in the making as this will be the first and last time that this situation will occur in relation to the QE2 as the vessel is on her Farewell Round Britain Cruise, prior to sailing to Dubai where she has been purchased by local investors who will convert her into a permanent floating luxury hotel.

The ‘royal’ visitor is expected to appear in Douglas Bay anytime from an anticipated 06.45am until 7.30am.

If you can’t make it to Regent Street Post Office, the special envelopes can be purchased online at www.iomstamps.com, by phone 698430 or ordered through your local post office.
