Town council reveals Brecon’s plans for Jubilee celebration
Brecon Town Council has revealed its plans to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next month.
Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. To celebrate this unprecedented anniversary, events and initiatives will take place throughout the summer, culminating in a four-day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday, June 2 to Sunday, June 5.
In Brecon, a beacon will be lit at the Bandstand at the Promenade at 9:15pm on Thursday, June 2. Beacons are being lit all over the UK and further afield in recognition of The Queen’s long service and to commemorate the Jubilee.
The free event will begin at Brecon’s Bandstand from 6pm, which will include performances from Alive & Kickin’ Community Choir and Brecon & District Male Voice Choir. ‘Luke’ will also be performing a number of Queen songs in a Freddie Mercury tribute.
As part of the celebration, people are encouraged to wear fancy dress to the event. This can be in either of the ‘Queen’ styles - royal or rock.
The Town Council is urging those attending the event to bring their own picnic, and asks partygoers to please walk to the Bandstand if possible.
On Saturday, June 4, there is set to be a special Platinum Jubilee Market in Brecon, which promises something for everyone. With many traders from all over Wales involved and just over the border in England there’s bound to be plenty to enjoy.
In Llandrindod Wells, Fuelled by Cake, the pop-up events team, has teamed up with the Town Council to hold a Big Jubilee Street Party on Thursday, June 2 from midday in Middleton Street. Revellers can expect the town band, a royal banquet and a fancy dress parade celebrating the “Best of British” - as well as plenty of dancing in the street.
In the Welsh capital, Cardiff Castle will host one of the biggest parties in the country on the June Bank Holiday weekend when the best of Welsh entertainment comes together for the event.
Performers include Aled Jones, Mike Peters, Bonnie Tyler and John Owen Jones.
