Celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Later this year, we will be celebrating The Queen’s unprecedented 70 years on the throne with all sorts of national and community events over a four day Bank Holiday Weekend. Here are some ideas on how you can get involved with the celebrations.

Organise a street party

The UK has a long history of organised street parties to celebrate national events. Why not organise one for your neighbours for the Platinum Jubilee?

The Big Jubilee Lunch

To coincide with the Platinum Jubilee, The Big Jubilee Lunch will be taking place on Sunday 5 June. Since 2009, The Big Lunch has encouraged local communities to celebrate their connections.

Beacon lighting 

The UK has a long tradition of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations through beacon lighting. You could light a beacon or get involved in beacon lighting within your local communities on the evening of 2 June.

The Queen’s Green Canopy

You can continue to plant trees until the end of 2022 as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy.
