Do you have plans for the Platinum Jubilee weekend?

Postby Community Editor » Fri May 13, 2022 11:10 am

The extended bank holiday weekend, to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, is nearly upon us and we'd love to hear what the NappyValleyNet community is doing to celebrate this special occasion.

Will you be attending a Big Jubilee Lunch street party? Are you planning on heading into Central London to experience some of the events put on by the Palace or are you off to the Derby at Epsom? Perhaps you're a local business who's putting on something extra special over the four day bank holiday weekend?

Whatever your plans are do please share them with the NappyValleyNet community below, and don't forget to dig out those Union Jack flags and bunting!

We will be slap bang in the middle of exams. So kind of the government who, having utterly messed (you can substitute a stronger word) up kids’ education for the past two years have then given absolutely no thought to them when it came to deciding on the dates of the Jubilee celebrations. :roll:

To celebrate this historic year, the team at No3 Bistro has designed an afternoon tea with a doff of the hat to Her Royal Highness record-breaking 70 years on the throne.

As well as taking in the decadent surroundings our guests have come to love here at No3 Restaurant and Bistro at Nightingale Place, we'll be sprucing things up with a patriotic Jubilee touch for the extended weekend. Join us for our Royal Tea with such English favourites as Victoria sponge, lemon posset and Coronation chicken sandwich fingers.

Here's what's happening at The Hope, Bellevue Road:
 Celebrate like royalty from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th of June at The Hope.
 Kick-start the festivities by sipping on a glass of our limited-edition Jubilee cocktail, the Chambord Spritz. Refreshing, delicious and just a little bit noble.
 Join in the Big Jubilee Lunch occasion on Sunday with our classic Sunday Roasts. And what are royal festivities without a glass of fizz to complement your favourite roast? After all, Her Majesty isn’t the only one who deserves a celebration.
