Platinum Jubilee

Queen's Platinum Jubilee logoIn 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, reflecting her 70 years of service.

There will be year-long Platinum Jubilee celebrations throughout the year. 

An extended bank holiday, from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June, will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate the historic milestone. Across the four days, the celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflections on The Queen’s 70 years of service.

Below lists how we are supporting the celebrations in Hart.
