A celebration marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is set to be the country’s ‘biggest ever’ celebration when it takes place next year over a bumper bank holiday weekend.

The event, marking her Majesty’s 70 years as reigning monarch, is tipped to be even bigger than the celebrations for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee – and could be watched by over a billion people worldwide.

At the centre of it all will be a four-day bank holiday – which will give people the chance to join in the celebrations as well as enjoy a well-earned break from work.

Thursday, June 2, and Friday, June 3 are the official bank holidays – with the first date replacing the usual Spring Bank Holiday, which is normally on the final Monday in May.

Friday, June 3 is an additional Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday.

Although Saturday and Sunday will not be bank holidays, they will be marked by a full schedule of events to mark the momentous occasion.

Although the actual date of her Majesty’s Jubilee is February 6, 2022, the actual celebrations will take place four months later.

The £15 million event begins with Trooping the Colour, which will be staged in full for the first time since the pandemic, and a live Platinum Party at the Palace concert will be held at Buckingham Palace, featuring some of the world’s biggest music stars.

A service of thanksgiving for the Queen’s reign will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral on Saturday.

Beacons will be lit across the UK, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, and overseas territories.

Communities across the country will be encouraged to sit down together for a big jubilee lunch on the Sunday with friends, family, and neighbours, bringing people together ‘in the spirit of fun and friendship’.

As many as 6,500 performers are set to take part in Sunday’s finale, which will feature a huge Jubilee parade through the capital celebrating the life of the Queen.

The pageant’s co-chair Nicholas Coleridge told MailOnline: ‘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.’
