Big Lunch events, lighting beacons in the north and south of the city, grants for environmentally friendly legacy projects and a weekend of street parties are among the exciting plans Portsmouth City Council has in store to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.

The Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II will be celebrated in June 2022 to mark 70 years since Her Majesty’s accession on 6 February 1952.

In the United Kingdom, an extra bank holiday has been created and the traditional May bank holiday weekend will be moved to the start of June, to create a special four-day Jubilee weekend from 2 – 5 June 2022.

Portsmouth is looking to compliment the national programme with a number of opportunities for people to get involved through the June Bank Holiday weekend. Plans include:
Participation in the national beacon lighting programme with beacons being lit at Fort Purbrook and Southsea Castle to mark the start of the celebratory weekend.
An outdoor Big Lunch event being held in both the north and south of the city on Sunday 5 June - potentially on Southsea Common and King George V playing field.
Funding for an environmentally focused community legacy project in every ward in the city, such as wildflower gardens, beehives or parklets.
Street party events being encouraged across the weekend with online applications opening soon.
A glittering exhibition of civic silver at Portsmouth Museum and Art Gallery.
