JUBILEE WEEKEND 2022 marks the momentous occasion of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – marking 70 years of service to her people and the Commonwealth.

The extended bank holiday from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June, it the perfect time for us to come together and celebrate this historic milestone. Here you will find a taste of some of the events that are going to be held across Lancashire to celebrate – how will you be joining in? Take a look at CelebrateLancashire.com for the latest details on the Beacon lighting locations (2 June), street parties and The Big Jubilee Lunch (5 June)
