Events for the Platinum Jubilee

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will be celebrated between 2nd and 5th June.

Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd are bank holidays so we will be making it a long weekend.
For your diaries these are the main events planned around Petherton:

An afternoon Street Party with entertainment. Bring you picnic along with chairs and a table if you need them.

Friday 3rd June 2022 – Celebrations in and around the Parish Church from 2pm till 9pm
Includes a sing-along with Traditional Hymns, Royal Toast, Local History Group display, Drop-in arts & crafts for families, a family film followed by BBQ plus ringing of the Bells between 19.52 and 20.22pm

Sunday 5th June – Party from 2pm along St James Street
The Street will be closed, decorated with flags and bunting plus tables laid out in the road for people who cannot bring their own.

There will be music and a hog roast. We hope to repeat the event held for the last Jubilee in 2012.

Platinum Jubilee Window Competition

A prize will be awarded for the best decorated window.

Local people and groups are working together to make these events a community celebration. Volunteers to join the set up of our plans will be most welcome.

More other local events are being planned along with things not connected to the Jubilee such as the David Hall programme and the Brewer’s annual Beer Festival.

The Parish Council is providing sponsorship and is considering ideas for a permanent commemorative item. Suggestions please.
