The Platinum Jubilee Pageant: A pageant featuring over 5,000 people from across the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth will take place against the backdrop of Buckingham Palace and the surrounding streets. It will combine street arts, theatre, music, circus, carnival and costume and celebrate the service of Her Majesty’s reign, as well as honouring the collective service of people and communities across the country.
The Big Jubilee Lunch: People are invited to share friendship, food and fun with neighbours as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. A Big Jubilee Lunch can be big or small - street party or picnic, tea and cake or a garden barbeque. The Big Lunch provides tips and ideas for hosting an event.
IN COUNTESTHORPE - Bring along a picnic or enjoy on-site catering at our 'Big Lunch'. Countesthorpe Academy has generously offered the use of their open spaces to allow this event to go ahead. The event runs from 12noon to 4pm and includes music and family games organised by the Countesthorpe Scout Group. If you would like a stall for a craft display, etc, please contact us. It will be a great way for everyone to get back together after the past two years' restrictions.
Buckingham Palace has announced the Platinum Pudding Competition with the winning entry to be enjoyed at the Big Lunch. Here is the link to the competition page
A big thank you to Countesthorpe Academy for their support in enabling us to run this event at their grounds and for the administrative support they are giving to the organising of the Jubilee Events in Countesthorpe
