Celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee with us

This year we celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years since Her Majesty The Queen’s accession to the throne. 

It will be the first time a British monarch has marked a Platinum Jubilee. This momentous anniversary will be marked with an extra-long Bank Holiday weekend from 2 to 5 June. 

Celebrations in Plymouth will include the ceremonial lighting of a beacon on the walls of the Citadel. We’re also encouraging the people of Plymouth to host their own street parties during the Jubilee weekend, with a simple process to request road closures.

During the weekend, Council buildings will also be illuminated in purple each evening in celebration.

There will be lots for everyone to enjoy across the city during this extra-special weekend, including the 1 Big Summer music festival which takes place on Plymouth Hoe from 2 to 4 June. Find out more about what’s on in Plymouth during the Jubilee weekend on the Visit Plymouth website.
