On the same day as the Queen’s parade, 1,500 beacons will be lit throughout the UK, including each of the capital cities of the Commonwealth countries,

The Queen, accompanied by members of the Royal Family, will also attend the Derby at Epsom Downs on 4 June.

As part of the Platinum Jubilee Pageant on 5 June, artistic performers, dancers, musicians, military personnel, key workers and volunteers will take part in the event that will combine “street arts, theatre, music, circus, costumes and visual technology”.

On 3 June a Service of Thanksgiving event will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral, with further events to be announced soon.

Tickets for the parade and the live broadcast concert event at Buckingham Palace are both available to the public via a ballot.
