The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend - Save the Date!

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend - Save the Date!

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 are taking place throughout the year, culminating in a four day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June 2022. 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.

Daventry Town Council will be marking this historic occasion:

  • Queen's Green Canopy - There will be a commemorative tree planting by the Town Mayor in New Street Park as part of the Queen's Green Canopy. Additionally, the town noticeboard in the same area will have a well-deserved lick of paint and refurbishment.
  • Twinning Area - The Daventry/Westerburg Twinning and flagpole area on London Road, often the focus for many an official occasion, will also be spruced up with newly coloured shields.
  • Daventry Museum - The Museum are holding a commemorative Jubilee display during June which is sure to spark nostalgia and curiosity, do get in touch with the museum, should you have any Jubilee memorabilia, photos or stories that you would like to share. The Museum will be open on Saturday 11th June, the Queen's official birthday (rather than 4th June, usually the first Saturday of the month).

More details about the above listed celebrations to follow in full, including a crown making activity session with Daventry Museum.
