Platinum Jubilee Arrangements

Visit this page, from time to time, to keep up to date with Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee (70 years) arrangements and initiatives as they are announced.

Accession Day is in February 2022, but experience from Silver, Gold and Diamond Jubilees tells us that the focus of celebrations will be in late spring/ early summer 2022, with an additional Bank Holiday already announced, to create a four day weekend 2-5 June 2022.

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.

The commemorations are being arranged jointly with The Royal Household and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

NACO will work with our established contacts in these organisations, to ensure members are well informed.
