FIVE HOURS of live entertainment, live music, food and more took place at Sanders Park prior to the lighting of the Bromsgrove’s Queen’s Platinum Jubilee beacon lighting.
Hundreds of people gathered in Sanders Park as a number of artists took to the stage at the Jubilee Bandstand.
Among them were Vintage Class Singers and Emily Badger.
Bromsgrove Jubilee Choir sang ‘A Life Lived With Grace’, commissioned by Commonwealth Resounds.
Rev Ray Khan from St John’s Church played ‘Majesty’ on the bugle.
The fun family-friendly event got under way at 5pm with the beacon lighting overseen by Coun Rod Laight, Bromsgrove District Council chairman.
This was one of more than 2,022 Platinum Jubilee beacons lit across the UK and the Commonwealth in honour of The Queen.
Many were lit simultaneously at 9.45pm British Summer Time.
The authority worked with partners to put on the celebratory event which kick-started the district’s Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
