Beacon Lighting and Fireworks – Windsor Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend Event

June 2

Following our country’s long tradition of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with the lighting of beacons, the Platinum Jubilee weekend in Windsor will commence with the lighting of our Windsor beacon, as part of the National Beacon lighting. This will take place on the Long Walk as darkness falls. People are invited up to the Beacon site where there will be music and excitement. Alternatively, many will choose to watch the spectacle from closer to home and savour the start of a wonderful extended weekend. The lighting will be followed by a wonderful firework display which can be best viewed from the Long Walk.

For the first time, beacons will also be lit in each of the capital cities of the Commonwealth countries to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
