This year the UK will be celebrating the Queens’ Platinum Jubilee. With the last couple of years being tied down in lockdown restrictions, and the promise of a four day UK bank holiday weekend, we’re here to help with plenty of ideas on how to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.

What Is The Platinum Jubilee?

The Platinum Jubilee is a celebration of the Queens’ 70 years on the throne. It is a really big celebration as it is the first time ever that a British monarch has celebrated 70 years on the throne.

As with previous Jubilee celebrations, the first weekend of June has been chosen as the date to hold celebrations. Taking place from the 2nd-5th June 2022 there is the hope of warm weather and lots of room for celebrations.

In a recent survey, 85% of the population have only ever known Queen Elizabeth II as the monarch on the throne, therefore there is lots of reason to celebrate.
