In June 2022, the UK will come together to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The Platinum Jubilee marks the 70th anniversary of The Queen’s accession to the throne on 6 February 1952. This is the first time that any British monarch has reached this historic milestone.
As well as being Queen of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth II serves as Head of the 54-member Commonwealth of Nations and is Queen of 14 Commonwealth Realms.
To mark the Platinum Jubilee, the government has created a 4-day Bank Holiday weekend, moving the Late May Bank Holiday to Thursday 2 June and creating a new Bank Holiday on Friday 3 June.
How is Haringey celebrating?
There will be events and activities across Haringey to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.
On Thursday 2 June from 2pm, there will be an event to bring together the whole Haringey community in Bruce Castle Park with a bouncy castle, inflatable football, craft workshops, BBQ, music and much more.
On Saturday 4 June between 1pm and 6pm, there will be a joint celebration at Lordship Rec as the Youth Fest event represents another occasion for residents in our borough to mark HM The Queen's seven decades on the throne. There will be free activities and performances, including dance, drumming, martial arts and stalls, at this launch event for our People Need Parks programme across many Haringey parks this summer.
Haringey Libraries have an extensive programme of events for people of all ages, including tea parties, crown and flag-making workshops, and film screenings.
Bernie Grant Arts Centre are running a series of events for Black LGBTQI+ residents - in the lead-up to the Jubilee weekend, as well as a fun and family friendly afternoon of T-shirt design and crown making on Friday 3 June.
Residents have also been given the chance to organise their own street parties to mark the Jubilee weekend, and there are lots of events going on in community spaces across the borough.
