The St Helena Association decided to move the annual UK gathering of Saints after 34 years of hosting it at Reading Rugby Club’s ground in Sonning.

The new venue at Abbey Rugby Club in nearby Emmer Green will allow celebrations to carry on into the early hours of the morning.

It also offers cheaper bar prices, better catering facilities, and access to toilets and showers through the night.

The association’s St Helena Day Dance has been booked for the same venue for Saturday 24 May 2014.

Interestingly, 24 May was celebrated as Empire Day in the UK between 1904 and 1958 – marking the birthday of Queen Victoria.
