LIGHTING OF THE JUBILEE BEACON – 2nd JUNE 21:45…..click here for full details

WE are proud to be part of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacons and Associated Activities on June 2, 2022 

Oxton Jubilee Committee has announced plans to light a Beacon for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on the evening of Thursday, 2 June, 2022.

The Beacon is one of thousands being lit in the UK and the Commonwealth, and forms part of the official programme announced by Buckingham Palace for the Jubilee Weekend.

The Beacon will be lit at 9.45 pm on the bonfire site, Oxton Village Hall, and it will be one of over 2,022 lit by charities, communities and faith groups all over the UK.

In addition, beacons will be lit in all 54 Commonwealth capitals and the Principal Beacon lighting will take place in a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace on Thursday evening. This will take the form of a lighting installation with The Queen’s Green Canopy ’Tree of Trees’ sculpture and projections onto the front of Buckingham Palace. This innovative new way of taking part in the beacon lighting will reflect the Royal Family’s long history championing environmental causes.
