Let's fly the flag for Britain and celebrate the Diamond Jubilee!
Street parties and celebrations will be held over the extended bank holiday weekend, so why not enjoy adding to the celebrations with our range of Jubilee lanterns, party parasols and Jubilee pom poms. Buckingham Palace has announced a variety of events to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee including:
The Big Jubilee Lunch Initiative - people are being encouraged to join their neighbours to celebrate, and decorate their homes and streets, schools and fields with red, white and blue decorations including paper lanterns, party parasols, tissue pompoms and traditional Union jack bunting for a few hours of 'community, friendship, and fun'.
A network of 2,012 Beacons will be lit by communities and individuals throughout the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and the Commonwealth. The Queen will also light the National Beacon.
The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant will take place on 4th June and consist of 100 flotillas assembled from across the UK, around the Commonwealth and around the World. The Queen will travel in the Royal Barge which will lead the pageant up the Thames.
