New community grant fund launched for Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Telford & Wrekin Council is launching The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration Fund to support local communities to come together to hold their own Platinum Jubilee events and celebrations.

New community grant fund launched for Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, 70 years of service, having acceded to the throne on 6 February 1952 when Her Majesty was 25 years old.

An extended bank holiday, from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June 2022, will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom and across the Commonwealth to come together to celebrate this historic milestone.

The four days of celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflection on The Queen’s 70 years of service.

“The Platinum Jubilee Celebration Fund aims to make the Platinum Jubilee weekend one to remember, a time for celebration, community spirit and for marking and remembering the seven decades of Her Majesty’s reign. We are encouraging the local community to come forward and apply for funding to create their own special celebrations from street parties to larger community events” Cllr Eileen Callear, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Visitor Economy

More information about the grant, including criteria and how to apply can be found online at An online briefing workshop about the grant is taking place on Tuesday 30 November from 6pm to 7pm and can be booked via Eventbrite - Jubilee Grant Funding Workshop Tickets, Tue 30 Nov 2021 at 18:00 | Eventbrite
