Are You Jubilee Ready?

On the 6th February 2022, the Queen became the first British Monarch to achieve a Platinum Jubilee. It was this day 70 years ago that Princess Elizabeth’s beloved father passed and she became our Queen. This will be Her Majesty’s fourth jubilee and the celebrations will culminate in a four-day bank holiday extravaganza on the 2nd - 5th of June. She would love for all the nation to get involved.

There are many ways in which you can get involved in celebrating Her Majesty’s historic reign in the run-up to and during the Platinum Jubilee Weekend.

There will be street parties everywhere and celebratory park picnics. Don’t miss out on the fun and check your local council and community websites for events local to you.

Make it fun, dress up for it, have your favourite foods, wear red, white and blue, make some bunting and decorate your home and garden. Take the opportunity to bake some tasty treats for your family, and friends and impress them at the street party.

Throughout the weekend your TV will be chock-a-block with eye-catching, celebratory Royal entertainment. Make it even more special by inviting family and neighbours to share these monumental moments with you.
