New details have emerged ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations next year with the four-day Bank Holiday set to be the UK’s largest ever celebration.

Brits will enjoy a four-day Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70-year reign on the throne.

The Queen is the first British Monarch to celebrate the occasion having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952, when she was 25-years-old.

An eye-watering £10-£15 million has reportedly been put aside for the weekend of celebrations in June next year.

The celebrations will begin on Thursday with the first Trooping the Colour ceremony since before the coronavirus pandemic.

There will also be a service of thanksgiving for the Queen’s reign as head of state at St Paul’s cathedral on the Saturday.

More than 6,500 street performers will take part in a street parade through London on Sunday, June 5 next year.

Dragons the size of London buses and other beasts as tall as three-story houses will line the streets ad part of the celebrations.

The parade will run through Westminster, down the Mall passing Buckingham Palace and up towards Constitution Hill with people from across the UK taking part in the event.

All 54 Commonwealth countries will also be represented as part of the celebrations.

Dame Helen Mirren and comic actor Stephen Fry have been involved in publicising the event, which will be staged over four nights in the grounds of Windsor Castle next May, and are in discussions with organisers about taking part in the final show.

The BBC predict Sunday’s showcase pageant will be watched by around one billion people around the world.

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations set to be UK’s largest ever event

Nicholas Coleridge, a co-chair of the pageant and chairman of the Victoria & Albert Museum offered further detail at the Conservative Party press conference in Manchester.

He told The Mail: "It’s going to be the largest that’s ever put on, larger we think even than that that was put on for Queen Victoria.

“It’s not going to be London-centric. We even have a giant map, making sure that we have people from every part of our country and indeed every part of the Commonwealth.

“We’re going to have people from all 54 Commonwealth countries who are going to be taking part in this astounding parade."
