Administrative / Biographical history

The Fourth of June is an annual celebration of the birthday of George III. A gala day as near as practicable to the actual date is held when parents, friends, and relations are made welcome. Alongside a number of exhibitions and sporting events, the day features Speeches and the Procession of Boats followed by fireworks. Many Old Etonians, particularly expatriates, still meet for the Fourth of June.
