Get the flags out for a right-royal Jubilee celebration! Wakefield’s Coronation Gardens (and adjoining Wood Street) pay tribute to Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a whole day of family-friendly celebrations to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of her reign.
Pick up some treats to tempt even regal taste buds and quirky gifts fit for a king (or queen) at the speciality market.
Dust off your glad rags and get set to jitterbug, jive and twist to the sounds of the 1950s-style live music stage (we’ve heard there’s this new thing called Rock and Roll from America…).
Make way for the Queen’s Guard! Themed street entertainers dressed as royal guards will be providing fun throughout the day – but can you make them laugh?!
Exercise your creative streak with a Jubilee-themed craft workshop, and create your own giant bubbles at the bubble workshop.
Show off your patriotic side and get your photo taken inside the giant Union Jack globe!
This event is free for the community to attend, and will run from 10am – 4pm.
This Jubilee celebration is part of commemorations and celebrations all across Wakefield for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – for more events across the district, click here, or for the official government website, click here.
