The excitement for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is building with loads of special events planned and Queensgate Shopping Centre in Peterborough is getting ready to join the party with a a three-day, free, festival of fun.
On Tuesday May 31, a giant 6ft card will be put up in the centre for everyone to add a personal message of congratulations to Her Majesty. Queensgate will then send the card to The Queen as a gift from the people of Peterborough.
Then on Wednesday June 1, you can make a majestic memory for Her Majesty. There’ll be giant props and plenty of photo ops! Take the family along and make a happy memory in the centre with face painters to mark this special occasion plus there’ll be free crafts and letter writing to enjoy,
The final day ends with a ‘bang-quet’. On Thursday June 2, it’s time for tea and a dance! A giant teacup and bunting make for a great family photo opportunity while tea is poured to toast our favourite monarch. Grab a partner and learn the ‘two step’ as the party gets going in Queensgate.
