Celebrate the Platinum Jubilee with The Big Lunch

Residents are invited to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in Loughborough’s Queen’s Park on Sunday 5th June.


Charnwood Borough Council will host ‘The Big Lunch’ picnic from midday until 4.00pm, which is an afternoon of fun-filled attractions including live music, entertainment and children’s activities.


There’s live music from Embers Duo, a Carillon recital at 1.00pm and the Charnwood Concert band will be performing in the bandstand from 3.00pm.


Residents are invited to bring their own a picnic, chair and blanket and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the beautiful Queen’s Park.


Councillor Jenny Bokor, lead member for Loughborough, said: “I am thrilled that Charnwood residents will be able to come down to Queen’s Park and have an afternoon of fun to mark Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.


“The Big Lunch will be a fantastic opportunity for Charnwood residents to cap off the Platinum Jubilee weekend in style. There will be something for the whole family to enjoy, from fun rides, activities, stalls, food and much more.


“I hope that the weather is great on the day and that everybody who attends has a fantastic time.”


Alongside The Big Lunch event, the Council will also light the Beacon at Queen’s Park at a special event from 8.00 to 10.00pm on Thursday 2nd June when a heritage plaque will also be unveiled to commemorate the day.


Residents can also share tributes, stories and memories about Her Majesty the Queen at www.charnwood.gov.uk/platinum. Your submissions will appear on the Council’s social media channels and on a designated page on the website.
