The Queen’s Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend is fast approaching and what better way to spend it than in your favourite beer garden with friends and some delicious pub grub.
We’re celebrating along with the rest of the nation. There are tons of events from concerts to street parties and more. But what exactly are the reasons behind the Jubilee weekend? Let’s find out!
The Queen marks 70 years on the throne in 2022, the first time that a British monarch has celebrated a Platinum Jubilee – pretty huge right? But why June you ask? Simply put, June offers a better chance of good weather. This is why the Golden and Diamond Jubilees were in June also!
Let’s dive into some of the exciting events and celebrations being held from 2nd-5th June.
