“I can confidently say this will be the mother of Jubilees”

While HRH The Queen officially became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service, on February 7th, the palace has announced a year-long calendar of celebrations, culminating in a four-day Bank Holiday weekend from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June. Progressive Party found out what the industry’s hopes and expectations are, as well as what products they will have on offer.

The June Bank Holiday will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the UK to come together to celebrate the historic milestone of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The four-day event is set to feature public events, community activities and national moments of reflection, including The Queen’s Birthday Parade (Trooping the Colour); Platinum Jubilee Beacons; a Service of Thanksgiving; the Platinum Party at the Palace; The Big Jubilee Lunch; The Platinum Jubilee Pageant; as well as a myriad of local parties.

Many suppliers said they are seeing anticipation mounting already for the weekend. George Morgan, manager of graphic design and illustration supply chain at Henbrandt, says: “We have been seeing the excitement building for the Platinum Jubilee since January with many of our Union Jack items going out the door on huge pallets. Numerous items have been re-ordered and are being rushed in.”
