Croydon celebrates Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee

From 2-5 June 2022 Croydon is celebrating Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee!

With 148 Big Jubilee Lunch street parties planned across our borough, families, friends and neighbours are coming together to share fun, friendship and food.

At 8.30pm on Thursday 2 June, we’ll join thousands of communities across the UK and Commonwealth in lighting a Jubilee Beacon outside Croydon Town Hall.

From civic ceremonies to craft sessions, tree planting to parties, Croydon is marking this historic occasion in many ways – find out more and check out our gallery below.
