Woking's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

2 to 5 June 2022

This year, Celebrate Woking returns to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, with a weekend of activities for everyone to celebrate this historic milestone.

In June, Her Majesty the Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, having acceded to the throne on 6 February 1952 and completed 70 years of service.

To mark this event, there will be an extended bank holiday from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June, which will provide an opportunity for communities to come together to celebrate.

Platinum Jubilee Celebrations in Woking Town Centre

Jubilee Square is set to come alive with Platinum Jubilee celebrations!

Relax and soak up the atmosphere as Summer in the Square returns, featuring a big screen airing the best Jubilee-related highlights, deck chairs and a host of activities.

 

Pubs, bars and restaurants will also be joining the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, as eating areas will be set up to create a street party atmosphere in the heart of the town. Enjoy a menu fit for a queen or sip your afternoon tea on the terrace while enjoying a slice of cake.
