Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

This year marks the occasion when Her Majesty The Queen becomes the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. This special extended bank holiday weekend offers us the perfect opportunity for local communities to meet up and celebrate the historic milestone together, and we can’t think of a better place to do this than in our wonderful pubs and pub gardens.

We have a whole host of Jubilee themed events taking place in our pubs and we’re inviting you to be part of our four-day bank holiday weekend spectacular. From picnics with Pimm's, live music overlooking the coast, or delicious afternoon teas in country pub gardens, we’re celebrating the Jubilee in the best way possible, with a right royal knees up at the pub!
