The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend celebrations

Saffron Walden Town Council with our Platinum Sponsor Intercounty Estate Agents are proud to present a four-day Platinum Jubilee Extravaganza on The Common!

Starting on Thursday 2nd of June at 2pm with the Town Criers Proclamation in Market Square.  From mid-afternoon head over to The Common for food, drink and entertainment – followed with an evening of ‘Dance on The Common’ with The Miss Jones Jazz band.  The day of celebration will conclude with the Lighting of the Beacon.

On Friday the celebrations will be in full swing with an inclusive community event, with fun and activities for all the family – from face painting and crafts, to laser tag and bungee trampoline!  We hope you find yourself with us all on The Common.

As the weekend continues to Saturday our Jubilee Market, hosting a wide selection of stalls will be on The Common.  Food items, crafts and home wear will be available from local traders – this isn’t one you’ll want to miss out on.

The celebrations will conclude on Sunday with The Big Jubilee Lunch bought to you in association with Saffron Walden Initiative and Fairycroft House.  We welcome you all to come to The Common with your own picnic blankets to enjoy your lunch with musical entertainment between 12 – 4pm.

Running alongside and throughout the weekend will be a manmade beach with deck chairs and circus performances from Santos Circus; tickets for the circus to be purchased directly from Santos Circus.

We would like to thank everyone for their interest and support so far and we hope you are all as excited as we are!
