The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee - Fire Beacons
2nd June 2022
There is a long and unbroken
tradition in our country of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and
Coronationswith the lighting of beacons - on top of
mountains, churchand cathedral towers, castle battlements, on
town andvillage greens, country estates, parks and
farms, alongbeaches and on cliff tops. In 1897, beacons
were lit to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee.
In 1977,2002 and 2012, beacons commemorated the
Golden and Diamond Jubilees of The Queen, and in 2016
Her Majesty’s 90th birthday
On 2nd June 2022, we will celebrate another unique milestone in our history, Her Majesty The Queen’s 70th year as our Monarch and Head of the Commonwealth - her Platinum Jubilee. It is a feat no previous monarch has achieved. 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 beacons will enable local communities, individuals and organisations to pay tribute to her as part of the official Platinum Jubilee beginning weekend of celebrations from 2nd
to 5th June 2022.
