Plans unveiled for extra Bank Holiday to celebrate Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022

Post by LauraHammond »

Finally - something for us all to look forward to! There will be an extra Bank Holiday in 2022 in celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.



A press released issued by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport explains: "The May Bank Holiday Weekend will be moved to Thursday 2 June and an additional Bank Holiday on Friday 3 June will see a four-day weekend to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee - the first time any British monarch has reached this historic milestone.

"This historic event will reflect on Her Majesty's reign, and her impact on the UK and the world since 1952."

The incredible occasion will be marked by an "extensive programme of events that mix the best of British ceremonial splendour and pageantry with cutting edge artistic and technological displays".

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."
