As many others begin to do the same, GB groups across the country are getting ready to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee this summer. If you're still looking for ideas or activities for your group, check out this handy list below.

  • Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacon Lighting – 9.45pm on Thursday 2 June. If you would like to light your own beacon, page 17 of this guide to taking part online has details of how to register. The registration deadline is 30 May.
  • The Queen’s Green Canopy ­ – Individuals and organisations are encouraged to ‘plant a tree for the Jubilee’.  Trees should ideally be planted between October and March.
  • The Big Jubilee Lunch – 2- 5 June. Communities are encouraged to come together for lunch.
  • Hold your own local Platinum Jubilee Pageant. Find out more in this Platinum Jubilee Pageant pack.
