  • Nation will come together over a four-day Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate The Queen’s 70 year reign
  • Extensive programme of public events will mix traditional pageantry with cutting edge technological displays
  • Jubilee medal will be created and awarded to public services workers

The UK will celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 70th anniversary as monarch with a blockbuster weekend of celebrations, Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden has announced today.

The May Bank Holiday Weekend will be moved to Thursday 2 June and an additional Bank Holiday on Friday 3 June will see a four-day weekend to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s  Platinum Jubilee - the first time any British monarch has reached this historic milestone.

This historic event will reflect on Her Majesty’s reign, and her impact on the UK and the world since 1952.

Activity will build across 2022 in the run up to the four day weekend, when the eyes of the world will turn to the UK.

2022 will be a significant year for Britain as we will also host The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games and Festival UK 2022, each of which will bring a worldwide focus to the UK and will showcase the best of 21st Century Britain.


Further details on all aspects of programming, including events and how the public can get involved will be released in the months ahead.

Tallon International have  launched a fantastically, fun and innovative party range for the Jubilee event in 2022. Pre-sale is already underway so get in touch with your local sales representative as soon as possible as we anticipate these items selling out very soon!




Plans for the Platinum Jubilee are being developed in conjunction with some of the UK’s leading creative minds, event organisers and world class digital design companies. Using the talents of the UK’s cultural and creative sectors, the programme will engage young people from across the Commonwealth and use new technology in exciting ways.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said:

Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee will be a truly historic moment - and one that deserves a celebration to remember.

We can all look forward to a special, four-day Jubilee weekend, when we will put on a spectacular, once-in-a-generation show that mixes the best of British ceremonial splendour with cutting edge art and technology. It will bring the entire nation and the Commonwealth together in a fitting tribute to Her Majesty’s reign.
