If you haven’t yet decided what to do over the Jubilee weekend, there is plenty to choose from across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
Cllr Beverley Dunlop, portfolio holder for Culture and Vibrant Places said: “Platinum Jubilee is looking like it’s going to be an amazing weekend with events, activities and parties taking place all over. With so much going on, I hope everyone can find a way to join in. So, break out the flags, put up the bunting and enjoy yourselves.”
Beacon lighting by the mayors will take place in each town at 9.45pm on Thursday 2 June followed by simultaneous firework displays which can be viewed anywhere along the promenade or the clifftops overlooking Bournemouth and Poole bay.
With the Jubilee celebrations falling into the end of the May half term week, there’s also Christchurch Food Festival and Poole Seafood Festival taking place from 2-5 June.
And if sport and music is more your thing, Bournemouth 7s, known as the sporting Glastonbury, is back at East Parley in Christchurch serving up some of the best sport by day and an impressive multi-genre musical treat by night.
Smaller events will also be popping up across the three towns.
In Christchurch there’s a free Children’s Tea Party aimed at under 12s to enjoy circus workshops, stilt walking and magic shows, plus music and dancing. Come and meet Peppa Pig at 2Riversmeet Leisure Complex on Thursday 2 June at the Free Family Fun Day.
In Bournemouth, you can celebrate in style at the Russell Cotes Art Gallery & Museum, with afternoon tea on the cafe terrace, overlooking the garden and sea (pre-booking essential). Or you can join in at Fisherman’s Walk in Southbourne on Sunday 5 June and enjoy music and entertainment, fun and games, competitions, and a range of refreshments.
Poole will be celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a series of entertainment and events in the town centre, running from 28 May until 5 June.
