Residents in Warwick district are gearing up to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee over the June Bank Holiday weekend.
Warwick District Council and partners have facilitated the closure of over 30 roads in the District.
Street parties and jubilee celebrations will be taking place in all four towns from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June. Residents in Lillington have been meeting regularly to share tips and inspiration to ensure a successful street party, and gathered for a photo recently to mark this special occasion.
Councillor Andrew Day, Leader of Warwick District Council, said: “I’m delighted that our teams have pulled out all the stops to ensure that residents are able to celebrate this unique moment in history, coming together as a community after a difficult couple of years. I wish all those celebrating over the Bank Holiday weekend a wonderful time – I’m keeping my fingers crossed for blue skies and bright sunshine!”

- Friday 3 June – Warwick Road, Kenilworth - 11am to 4pm
