The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – 4 day Schedule of Celebrations

To mark the celebration of HRH Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, Fair Oak & Horton Heath Parish Council have prepared a schedule of events to coincide with the official schedule for the Jubilee bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd June– Sunday 5th June  

Thursday 2nd June:  

Joining in with the rest of the nation and Commonwealth, we will begin our celebration with the traditional “Lighting of the Beacon”. This will take place from 20:30pm at the trigonometrical point in Knowle Park with the actual lighting at 21:15pm. Residents are welcome to come along and spectate. 

Friday 3rd June:  

As this is the day of the Service of Thanksgiving, the Parish Council will readily signpost our residents to events happening across the parish. Information will be shared on our website and social media platforms. 

Saturday 4th June:  

The Parish Council will be conducting a ceremonial burial of a “Community Time Capsule” at the trigonometrical point in Knowle Park. The time capsule will contain pieces donated by community clubs and organisations that best represent them. The event will take place from 13:00 – 15:00pm.

If you would like to donate an item or take part, please email our Community Development Officer at: 

Sunday 5th June:  

In partnership with St. Thomas’ Church, we will be hosting a Jubilee Lunch at Horton Heath Community Centre. A three course, hot meal, free of charge, aimed at families and individuals who have particularly struggled because of the pandemic. Further details on the event and how to reserve a space will be posted on our website and social media.   

Street Parties:  

We actively encourage residents to host their own street parties throughout the Jubilee bank holiday weekend. If you are hosting a street party in Fair Oak or Horton Heath and would like to publicise your event, please email our Communications and Events Officer at: with the date, time, and location of your event and we will share details on your behalf via our social media platforms.
