The Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022

Queen's Platinum Jubilee


9.45PM Thursday 2nd June 2022 at Colster Way Play Area



Join Colsterworth and District Parish Council in celebrating Her Majesty The Queen’s 70th year as our Monarch and Head of the Commonwealth - her Platinum Jubilee Year with the lighting the beacon at 9.45pm on Thursday 2nd June 2022 at Colster Way Play area.
The beacon enables us to pay tribute to her as part of the official Platinum Jubilee Weekend of celebrations from 2nd to 5th June 2022

There is a long and unbroken tradition in our country of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with the lighting of beacons - on top of mountains, church and cathedral towers, castle battlements, on town and village greens, country estates, parks and farms, along beaches and on cliff tops. 

More than 2,022 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, and one in each of the capital cities of Commonwealth countries in recognition of The Queen’s long and selfless service. 

To coincide with the lighting of the Beacons, choirs of all types and sizes within local communities are warmly encouraged to sing this unique ’Song for the Commonwealth,’ the winner of a Commonwealth-wide song competition organised over the last few months, filling the world with the sound of music and song in celebration of this special moment in The Queen’s life. The song should be sung at exactly 9.45pm.
