Lambeth: Celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

The events are part of the national celebrations in 2022 which marks the year when Her Majesty The Queen becomes the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.

Cllr Claire Holland, Lambeth Council Leader elect, said: “We are delighted that so many of our residents are coming together to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee and the Queen’s incredible service to this country. There are a wide range of events planned to celebrate this milestone, and opportunities for everyone to get involved.”

Brockwell Park, between Herne Hill and Tulse Hill, will also be hosting Jubilation on June 2, a ticketed event, which is free for accompanied under-10s, and is being headlined by British musical legends Madness.

A community event will follow on June 25 and June 26 at Loughborough Community Centre, Max Roach One O’clock Club & Adventure Playground hosted by The Flying Seagull Project, a children’s arts charity.

They will be providing circus, entertainment, music and fun, while the The Felix Project will also be there providing food with chefs on hand preparing food for the event using surplus supplies in partnership with young people who took part in Bite Back 2030’s Community Food Champions pilot.

Families will be invited to attend, with plenty of activities for children, food provided as well as performances from the children that they have volunteered to put on and have been rehearsing. The event, which is backed by the National Lottery Community Fund also involves local charity groups.

In total Lambeth will see 61 street parties happening during the Jubilee Weekend, from June 2 to June 5, with half happening on the Sunday. Lambeth Council’s Events and Highways teams have been working with residents to ensure the impact of road closures are minimised.
