Plans unveiled for free Queen's Platinum Jubilee party at Bromsgrove's Sanders Park Bandstand

PLANS have been unveiled for a Queen’s Platinum Jubilee event at Sanders Park, featuring a host of live entertainment.

The free party will run from 5pm on June 2 at the bandstand which was created in 2002 for The Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

Five hours of activities and events will see one of 1,500 beacons across the UK lit.

As well as street entertainment, a host of local acts will be taking centre stage, including Skabucks, Vintage Class, Emily Badger and Blackwell Wind Band. Food and drink will also be available.

Bromsgrove District Council’s Portfolio holder for Leisure, Coun Michael Thompson, said: “Communities up and down the country will be coming together to celebrate this unique occasion and I am very proud in Bromsgrove we will share a special part in the Platinum Jubilee.”

Bruno Peek LVO OBE OPR, Pageantmaster of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacons, said: “The beacons will enable local communities to join together and pay tribute to Her Majesty as part of the official programme of events.

“For the first time town criers, pipers, buglers and choirs from the UK and the Commonwealth will come together to join in the celebrations in their own individual and special way.

“It is wonderful to see the range of support for beacon lighting which will highlight both the diversity and the unity of the nation.

“The Queen has lit up our lives for 70 years through her dedicated service and commitment.

“We would like to light up the nation and the Commonwealth in her honour.”
