Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Plans Announced

Buckingham Palace has announced further details of next year’s exciting celebrations to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

This time next year, we’ll be hanging out the bunting again as we’ll be treated to an extra Bank Holiday and a full programme of festivities over four days from 2 to 5 June 2012.

Celebrations include a free concert at Buckingham Palace (no line-up yet but we’re sure artists will be queueing up to perform for Her Majesty), a special Jubilee edition of The Big Lunch (encouraging us to enjoy lunch and a street party with our neighbours) and a Carriage Procession.

This is all in addition to the spectacular Thames Flotilla of 1,000 boats announced earlier this year. The occasion will also be marked by a network of 2,012 beacons which will be lit across the UK.

The Queen will begin the Jubilee celebrations with a trip to Epsom Derby on 2 June.

    The celebrations are listed as 4 days but you have put 2 – 4 June on the website. I am sure 5 June is also important for the processions etc.!!
