More than 1,000 events will take place during the Platinum Jubilee weekend from June 2nd to 5th, including official street parties. Here’s how to get involved
Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrates the monarch’s 70th reign and will see hundreds of thousands of Brits take to the streets to mark the occasion.
Street parties are set to take place across the UK, with 573 events listed near London alone over the four-day bank holiday from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June.
To mark the Platinum Jubilee, the Big Jubilee Lunch will be held on Sunday, encouraging communities to take to the streets, celebrate their connections and get to know each other better. The first edition of the luncheon was introduced a decade ago during the Diamond Jubilee.
According to the Eden Project: “It’s the party that’s your thing and everyone’s invited, so let’s hit our streets, gardens and neighborhoods to have fun and get to know each other.”
Map of official street festivals
Street party organizers are encouraged to add them to the event’s official website so more people can attend and enjoy being one of the Queen’s subjects.
Street festivals and luncheons are marked in green, yellow and purple.
The official street festival maps show all the listed events taking place across Wales and parts of England as far north as Yorkshire.
Heading to the north of England and Scotland, it tops Glasgow and Edinburgh with six parties between the central belt cities and further south Newcastle and Durham hold nine so far.
There are also two that are not marked on the Orkney map. One in Kirkwall and one at the Longhope Lifeboat Museum.
Those in Northern Ireland don’t come with street party options, but there are events in Irvinestown, Enniskillen and Omagh.
To find your next street party and get a more detailed view, you can go to Platinum Jubilee official site here, Here you will not only find official lunches, but also a whole range of other events to celebrate the occasion.
Each event has its own parking and access routes, but it is recommended that you do not park along the street where it is being held as this could become a safety hazard.
So far there are 1,458 public events and 1,775 street festivals or private events are scheduled to take place officially, with even more taking place informally in local communities.
