On 6th February this year Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.

To celebrate this unprecedented anniversary, events and initiatives will take place throughout the year, culminating in a four day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June. The bank holiday will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate the historic milestone.

The four days of celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflection on The Queen’s 70 years of service. For more information on events during the central weekend, please link to Plans announced for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Central Weekend 2022.

In addition, initiatives including The Queen’s Green Canopy and the Platinum Pudding competition – A Recipe Fit for The Queen will create a lasting reminder of The Queen’s Jubilee, while The Queen’s private estates will also join in with special Jubilee themed events offering more opportunities for members of the public to celebrate the historic milestone.

There are lots of ways you can take part in The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, whether you are a local authority, school, business, community group, or want to get involved yourself. And there will be many events and activities celebrating the Jubilee across the United Kingdom, Commonwealth and beyond in the months leading up to the special extended bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June 2022. Go to The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022 or to the Surrey County Council website to find out more about events in your area.
