In celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee, Jubilee Beacons will be lit on 2nd June 2022 at 9.45pm. Entertainment starts at 9pm.

More than 2,000 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, and one in each of the capital cities of Commonwealth countries in recognition of The Queen’s long and selfless service. The beacons will enable local communities, individuals and organisations to pay tribute to her as part of the official Platinum Jubilee Weekend of celebrations from 2nd to 5th June 2022.

As the sun sets on 2 June, join us in Jubilee Square in Woking at 9pm for a unique opportunity to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen and her achievements. 

Members of frontline and emergency services are particularly invited to this event, to enable the community to publicly thank them for their dedication and hard work during the pandemic.
