Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations

Planned events and street party information

The Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II will be celebrated in June 2022 in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth to mark the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession on 6 February 1952.

In the United Kingdom, an extra Bank Holiday has been created and the traditional May Bank Holiday weekend will be moved to the start of June, to create a special four-day Jubilee weekend from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June 2022.

Eastleigh Platinum Jubilee Community Showcase 

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Community Showcase, on Saturday 4 June, will bring together local organisations and residents to mark the historic occasion.

We are working in partnership with One Community to bring a day of colour and music to Eastleigh town centre. The Community Showcase, on Leigh Road Recreation Ground, will feature community group and charity information stands where you can find out what services and support is available to you or how you can get involved.

From 10am until 4pm, the day will be filled with community celebration and fun with homemade cakes, choirs and live music, a photo booth, arts and crafts and much more.

There will be bunting-making to decorate the bandstand and a day-long concert by Community Choirs on the bandstand, culminating in a Last Night of the Proms.

If your community group or charity are interested in having a stand or you belong to a community choir and would like to perform at this event, please email vss@1community.org.uk.

Can you help?

We're looking for a number of volunteers to help on the day from litter picking, directing people around the event and handing out flags. Any amount of time you can spare would really help this event to run smoothly on the day, if you think you would like to volunteer at this event please get in touch with Hayley hhamlett@1community.org.uk

Bring a stand

If you would like to have a stand at this event we still have space for a few more on site. If you could get in touch by emailing hhamlett@1community.org.uk and let us know what the main features of your stall are we will try to accommodate you.

Eastleigh Queen's Platinum Jubilee Street Party

As well as the community fun day there will also be a free children's street party with free lunch provided.

The High Street will be closed to vehicles and children are invited to attend a lunch where free food and drink will be provided. Under 12’s only. Pre-booking is essential. You can book your child’s place at the midday or 2pm sitting.

During the day there will be Beefeater Stilt Walkers, face-painters, a balloonist and plenty to see and do on this momentous occasion.

Children must book to attend this free event.

Thinking of holding your own street party?

Why not get together with your friends and neighbours and hold a street party to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We have put together some useful information to help you plan your event. Unfortunately, applications for road closures for a street party have now closed.
