Maundy Thursday

Also known as Holy Thursday, it celebrates the Thursday before Good Friday.

Maundy Money is a religious based ceremony that takes place every year on Holy Thursday. It is performed in recognition of how Jesus Christ served his disciples by washing their feet before the Last Supper and told them to love one another. During the Middle Ages, English Kings and Queens actually washed the feet of beggars but now only money is given.

  • The Queen will attend Westminster Abbey.
  • The service will be televised live on BBC1.

Location: Westminster Abbey, London.

Date: March/April - the day before Good Friday.
