Wilmslow's plans for Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Next year, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. To help Wilmslow residents celebrate Her Majesty’s historic reign, Wilmslow Town Council will be funding a variety of events for the four-day Bank Holiday weekend, between 2nd – 5th June 2022.

The Town Council are currently investigating the delivery of three events at the Carrs: a Beacon event - including a band and the unveiling of a permanent beacon - in addition to a Big Screen event to live broadcast the Jubilee Concert from Buckingham Palace and finally a community picnic event.

The Town Council will also look to offer a number of Mini Neighbourhood Grants for street parties and celebrations by individual community group (criteria to be announced closer to the date).

Wilmslow Town Council Chairman, Martin Watkins, said of the plans, “The Town Council’s Jubilee Working Group has researched and presented a wide range of ideas. The events agreed will be fitting for the Jubilee’s historical significance and will provide a way for all members of the community to celebrate together. We look forward to marking the occasion in Wilmslow”.
