Light a beacon for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee


Local (parish and town) councils have been asked to play a part in the Queen's Platinum Jubilee by lighting beacons on 2 June 2022.

More than 1,500 beacons will be lit across the country at 9.15 pm to mark the 70th anniversary of the Queen's coronation.

Beacons were lit to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897, and then again to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees, and in 2016 to celebrate her 90th birthday.

Cllr Sue Baxter, NALC chair, said: "The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is delighted to be supporting the Queen's Platinum Jubilee beacons, and we will be encouraging local councils throughout England to light beacons as part of the celebration".
