Queen’s Jubilee Celebration

This year , Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, 70 years of service, having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952 at only 25 years old.

Throughout 2022, Her Majesty and members of the Royal Family will travel around the country to undertake a variety of engagements to mark this historic occasion culminating with the focal point of the Platinum Jubilee, a specially extended bank holiday weekend in June providing the ideal opportunity for communities across the UK to come together and celebrate.  We can’t wait!

Four days of official celebrations will include an array of events – from over 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians Trooping the Colour to the lighting of beacons Nationwide (including here in Radlett), and from a special Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral to The Derby at Epsom Downs, a Platinum Party at the Palace aired on The BBC – and MUCH more! The entire Nation will be swept up in pride and excitement. 

Aldenham Parish Council has formed a dedicated working party to make sure Radlett’s contribution to the Jubilee weekend brings about events for us to remember forever!


On Thursday 2nd June 2022, the first special event, to be presented in partnership with Tabard Rugby Club, will culminate with the lighting of the Jubilee beacon on Cobden Hill. Details to follow.

Then,on Sunday 5th June 2022, the Radlett Big Jubilee Lunch will bring more celebrations right to the heart of our community – our high street.  The Radlett Big Jubilee Lunch will be part of full day’s event for our entire community to share friendship, food and fun.  Taking the best lessons from the 2012 Jubilee, we want to make this street party one for the history books. With live music, fairground rides, stalls, local crafts, ales, incredible food and activities for people of all ages, the sky is the limit for how we celebrate our wonderful community. 

Most of all we want YOUR ideas to bring about the very best Platinum Jubilee event, so we would love to hear from anyone reading this who might like to join our friendly working party. We know planning this will be huge amounts of fun and truly memorable given the occasion.
