Queens Platinum Jubilee

Queens Platinum Jubilee

To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee we will be taking part in the national lighting of the beacons ceremony on Thursday 2 June in Town Hall Square.


Join us in Town Hall Square from 9pm to take part in the celebration. The beacon will be lit at 9:45pm in line with the national timings.


Join us for this historic occasion by taking part in our free, magical augmented reality story-trail.

Located around the Airedale Shopping Centre are seven magical characters on a day trip from Buckingham Palace. Join Sir Barnaby Beacon on the trail as he visits his friends, you’ll be able to see them augmented reality, decide what happens next in the story and even win a free digital fun pack at the end. Not only that, but each of the characters will tell you about a decade in The Queen’s historic seventy-year reign. To learn more or start the trail, go to www.jubileebeacontrail.com
