The Queen's Platinum Jubilee
On 6 February 2022 Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to reign for 70 years, celebrating a Platinum Jubilee.
A number of events and initiatives are planned to take place throughout the year to mark this unprecedented anniversary.
The highlight of these celebrations will be centred on an extended UK bank holiday weekend beginning on Thursday 2 June and culminating on Sunday 5 June 2022.
In addition to a number of planned national events, people up and down the UK, are being encouraged to get together and bring the Jubilee celebrations into the heart of their own communities.

Planning a community celebration
Please read the information below if you live in Flintshire and are planning a community celebration.
A street party is a small event attended by local residents and their families (free of charge); and which isn't advertised to the wider community.
It will be held in a house or garden, local green space, or a quiet residential road.
Local residents will provide the food and there will be no sale of alcohol.
Non amplified music may be played between the hours of 8am and 11pm (unless a Temporary Event Notice is in place).
The sale of raffle tickets for a charity or good cause may be sold on the day for prizes with a value of less than £500.
If this sounds like your event and you are planning to hold it on a minor residential road, where there will be minimal impact on through traffic, you will need to apply for a Temporary Traffic Order (TTRO).
** The application process for TTRO's has now closed **
A public event is different to a street party.
Anyone can attend and an entrance fee may be charged.
The event is widely publicised for example online or with posters.
It is held in a building open to the public or a park.
Hot food and drinks are served after 11pm.
Alcohol is available for sale.
Live music is played between the hours of 8am and 11pm.
(Levels of amplified music from recorded or live events must be controlled so as not to cause noise nuisance to neighbours. Best practice would be to follow a ‘Noise Management Plan’ as part of your risk assessment).
The sale of raffle tickets for a charity or good cause may be sold in advance of the event.
If this sounds like your event will you need to submit a Temporary Event Notice to the Council by no later than ten working days before the event.
