Woking Borough Council is planning to mark
the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a weekend of
activities to celebrate the historic milestone that
is Her Majesty’s 70 years of service.
Events will start with a Beacon Lighting Ceremony
on Thursday, 2 June, when more than 1,500
beacons will be lit by communities, charities and
different groups across the UK.
Announcements will be posted on the Council's
website www.celebratewoking.info or in the local
press nearer the time, but there will be a host of
activities in Jubilee Square, which will also feature
a big screen airing the best Jubilee-related
highlights. Pubs, bars and restaurants will join the
celebrations, with eating areas set up to create a
street party atmosphere in the heart of the town.
But, while Celebrate Woking will encourage
communities to come together to commemorate
the Jubilee, it is also a great opportunity for artists
to create a lasting record of the celebrations.
Woking Borough Council is keen to encourage
our members to get involved in painting and/or
sketching street parties or other events across
the town and to share the work on social media.
