The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in Merton

This year, we celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s 70th year on the throne, a milestone that’s never before been reached in our country. 

Celebrations will be taking place locally all over our borough throughout the extended Bank Holiday weekend, which runs from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June. 

On this page you’ll find details of Jubilee events around Merton, memories of our borough’s royal history from our Heritage Team, and resources that will help you to set up your own celebrations. 

Resources for celebrations

If you’re planning on holding your own celebrations, take a look at the resources available in the Government’s Platinum Jubilee toolkit

Merton memories 

Our Heritage team have put together a range of resources including an online display, a quiz, craft activities, archive film and reminiscence materials to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. Take a look at their website to find activities for all age groups.

You can share your jubilee events, activities, and memories of the Queen with us using #LoveLocalLoveMerton and #MertonJubilee on Twitter and Facebook. We’ll be sharing some of our favourites with our thousands of followers. 

Street parties 

In celebration of this truly historic occasion, we’re facilitating residents to hold their own street parties by closing their roads off to traffic for a day. Applications to hold a street party have now closed, and we have granted permission to the residents of 94 streets. It’s the responsibility of the residents of each road to plan activities on the day of the party. 

If you’re organising one of the local street parties, take a look at our top tips for making your event sustainable
