Later this year, the nation will enjoy a four-day bank holiday to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with an extensive programme of public events. The traditional May bank holiday weekend has been moved to Thursday 2 June, with an additional bank holiday on Friday 3 June to create a four-day weekend. Events in London will be complemented by events in communities across the UK and Commonwealth, allowing people to join together to celebrate the Jubilee.
Cllr George Kup, Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Youth Engagement, said: “The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee marks an unprecedented anniversary and an opportunity for our towns and villages to come together to celebrate. The council has been able to waive the application fee for holding a Big Jubilee street party, and we hope that as many neighbourhoods as possible will take the opportunity to join in.”
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has launched the Platinum Jubilee website, including an interactive map which will display the location of all the events and activities taking place across the UK. The map is open to all, and everyone is encouraged to upload their planned events and activities to mark the Jubilee.
The deadline for Thursday 31 March 2022 has now passed and applications are now closed. If you have already been approved for a road closure from KCC please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to complete a supporting application.
