This leads us on to the most exciting event of the year! Her Majesty will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee after a fascinating 70 years of service. We are so thrilled to witness such a rare event occur, which is something most of us will never see again in our lifetime. 

Since the significance of this celebration is so pivotal, in this article, we discuss the numerous ongoing events that you can be a part of to enjoy the sunny extended bank holiday in style, which takes place from the 2nd to the 5th of June 2022. There are numerous ways to get involved, whether you are a part of the local authority, community group, school or business.

Host a street party 

Street parties have been a part of British history ever since the end of the first world war in 1919. With such an impressive long-standing history of celebrations, it is only right that neighbourhoods across the country come together and honour the Platinum Jubilee with all of your loved ones. 

Hosting a street party is fully encouraged across the UK, and we can’t wait to see the sweet snapshots come to life on social media. Make sure to document the event so everyone can see how much fun you had! Keep in mind that all events must comply with the public health guidance in place at the time. 

Enjoy The Big Jubilee Lunch

Coinciding with the Queen’s Jubilee 2022, The Big Jubilee Lunch will occur on Sunday the 5th of June. Since its introduction in 2009, The Big Lunch brings communities together to celebrate the art of connection and provides the perfect opportunity to get to know one another better.

After a successful Jubilee lunch to celebrate Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, The Big Lunch is back with a bang to bring the Jubilee celebrations to life again for 2022.

Light a beacon

The Platinum Jubilee Beacons is the first celebratory event of the four-day Jubilee weekend on the 2nd of June 2022. The lighting of beacons has become a symbol of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Coronations and Weddings, and the tradition is prominent this year. Light a beacon at home or look within your community in the evening.

The Queen’s Green Canopy

The Queen’s Green Canopy is a distinctive and unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, inviting people from across the UK to plant a tree for the jubilee. This sustainable project will create a lasting legacy and benefit future generations. 

Taking part with Sloane Stanley

On Saturday the 4th of June, 11 am till 6 pm, the King’s Road will be pedestrianised from Sloane Square to Cheltenham Terrace for a huge King’s Road Street party to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. The last time the road was closed for an event, it attracted over 162,000 people to the area that day. 

The King’s Road Street Party will provide a brilliant opportunity for the community to come together in jubilation, with the day including:

  • Family entertainment such as corgi biscuit decorating and lots of fun and games from entertainers Sharky & George
  • A Royal Commonwealth Market (working with the Royal Commonwealth Society), selling food from traders widely representative of the diversity and flavours from across the constituent member nations
  • The usual food market on the green in front of Saatchi, which will also be open for picnics 
  • Cultural partner showcases such as floral crown-making from Chelsea Physic Garden, storytelling from Peter Jones and live music from Cadogan Hall
  •  And much more music and entertainment which will be announced in the weeks to come
