Robin Gibb to travel through town in a horse-drawn carriage prior to service

Eメール 印刷

According to Press Association, Robin Gibb's horse-drawn carriage will travel through the town of Thame before his funeral.

 

The private funeral service will take place on Friday at St Mary's Church in Thame, Oxfordshire, close to the property where he lived.

Robin Gibb died from kidney failure last month after fighting cancer and pneumonia and suffering from a serious bowel condition. His death drew tributes from across the music world but also from politicians including former Prime Minister Tony Blair, who was a close friend.

Robin's glass-sided carriage - in which his coffin will be visible - will be drawn by four horses.
In a statement, his family said that "at his wish, he will say a final goodbye to fans and his home town of Thame, Oxon, this Friday prior to the funeral".  The carriage will leave from Priests End in the town at around 1.30pm and travel along the High Street to the town hall. It will then return through the High Street to St Mary's Church.

The family asked well-wishers and fans who want to pay their final respects to use the full length of the High Street to avoid congestion.

Robin's music, including "I Started A Joke" and "Don't Cry Alone" will be played during the service.
