Platinum Jubilee: What is happening at Clevertouch?

It is almost time for Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. To celebrate this monumental anniversary, events and parties will be taking place nationwide, with a four day bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June. 

To celebrate, why not create a account and play the English Friends in London app, a fun and educational language learning application that engages children and helps them improve their English language skills. With the help of your new London friends, Scott and Jasmine, discover some of London's landmarks and learn new words, build up your language skills, play games, listen to stories and learn English rhymes. Each topic covered in this application includes a follow-up comprehension game or exercise.

For more resources, please download our free Jubilee posters to display on your digital signage. 

What events are planned?
Thursday 2 June will feature Trooping the Colour, the Queen's official birthday parade, which ends with an RAF fly-past watched by members of the Royal Family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in London. It will also be the day when 1,500 beacons will be lit across the UK and in the capital cities of Commonwealth countries.

Friday 3 June will see a Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral in London.

Saturday 4 June, members of the Royal Family are expected to attend the Derby horse racing event at Epsom and the Platinum Party at the Palace, a live concert in front of Buckingham Palace featuring acts including Diana Ross, Queen, Duran Duran, Sir Rod Stewart and Eurovision singer Sam Ryder.

Sunday 5 June is the final day of celebrations, including the Platinum Jubilee Pageant. A performance finishing in front of Buckingham Palace will tell the story of the Queen's reign, featuring military personnel, dancers and puppets of corgis, and a performance by Ed Sheeran.
