A HUGE picnic table covering the stretch of the Windsor Long Walk will mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations next year.
It is expected to be the ‘largest’ celebration in history with a four day bank holiday weekend on Thursday, June 2, to mark the occasion.
Celebrations officially kick off in the evening with the lighting of the Windsor beacon, as part of the National lighting event.
On Friday there will be a concert in St George’s Chapel, followed by events on the Long Walk on both the Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday will be a carnival atmosphere with cars, music, sport and activities from across the decades of Her Majesty’s reign.
On Sunday the Big Picnic will be held with long tables along the length of the Long Walk.
Everyone is invited to these events, where it will also be possible to view other National Jubilee celebrations on the giant screens.
The Committee is raising funds to create a wonderful legacy for the Jubilee in the town, in the form of a water fountain.
This will celebrate the reign of HM The Queen and will provide fresh drinking water for the community and our visitors, thereby reducing single use plastics, helping to protect our precious environment.
The latest details were unveiled at a reception hosted by Sir James and Lady Perowne Graham Barker, Chair of the Committee, thanked the Honorary Vice Presidents, Committee members and our generous donors for their contributions to this wonderful cause.
