Bolton Celebrates The Queens Diamond Jubilee with Beacons and Street Parties

... Comments

There will be lots happening in Bolton to mark 60 years of The Queen's reign. The Diamond Jubilee will take place in June and the celebrations will centre around an extended weekend  on 2, 3, 4 and 5 June.

Bolton will be joining national celebrations to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Over the Bank Holiday weekend, Saturday 2 to Tuesday 5 June.

Bolton Catholic Musical and Choral Society, Bolton Symphony Orchestra and Bolton Choral Union have joined together to develop a programme that will include lots of music to suit all. The concert will take place at the Victoria Hall on May 26th at 7pm.

On Monday 4 June across Bolton, special beacons will be lit as we join communities across the globe in celebration of this very special occasion.

Residents of Bolton have the opportunity to take to the streets to celebrate another Royal occasion this Summer.

Bolton Council is again offering a free application service which successfully helped communities come together for last year's Royal Wedding. To make it as easy as possible for residents to hold street parties to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee over the extended Bank Holiday weekend (2-5 June), street party organisers simply have to fill out an application form and declaration, and submit them to the Council.

Anyone planning a street party for the Diamond Jubilee can apply to the Council for a temporary Traffic Regulation Order to close a minor road, free of charge.

The notice period for a road closure has been reduced from three months to six weeks, so applications need to be submitted by Friday 20 April.

Visit the Bolton Council Website for more information.
