Cambridge will light its own beacon on Thursday June 2 to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and we are all invited!

Beacons will be lit simultaneously across the country at 9.45pm on that day to mark the Queen’s 70 years on the throne. 

Cambridge’s celebrations will be at the Castle Mound on Castle Hill as part of an event organised jointly by Cambridgeshire County Council and Cambridge City Council.  The Jubilee Beacon will be lit by the Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, Mrs Julie Spence OBE QPM.  The beacon lighting is part of a special event featuring the Salvation Army Band together with a Guard of Honour.  Music and entertainment from 8:45pm.

As a special tribute to Her Majesty, a new, specially commissioned song for the Commonwealth will be sung by choirs in all 54 Commonwealth countries at the same time as the lighting of the beacons.

At precisely 9.45pm, more than 1,500 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, and one in each of the capital cities of Commonwealth countries in recognition of the Queen’s long and selfless service.  The new Mayor of Cambridge, Cllr Mark Ashton, will be among dignitaries attending the ceremonial beacon.
