Jubilee Events In Surrey & Sussex

Posted on: 16 May 2022

Jubilee Events in Surrey & Sussex

This year marks the Platinum Jubilee of her Majesty the Queen celebrating 70 years on the throne.

She is the first British Monarch to reach this historic reign and the nation is planning to celebrate in royal fashion – plus we get a four-day Bank Holiday weekend from Thursday 2 June through to Sunday 5 June.

Across the country there will be huge celebrations with everything from 1950s-themed street parties with bunting and flags galore to a party at Buckingham Palace.

Here at Clarendons we love a celebration, so we have listed a few local events taking place in our areas:

Picnic in the Park

Where: Gatton Park, Reigate

 When: 12-5pm, Sunday 5 June

Gatton Park will open up its garden and play host to its own ‘picnic in the park’ to commemorate the Jubilee. Bring along your own food to enjoy on the lawns by the hall or venture to the lake or Japanese gardens. Commemorative events for all the family will take place and there will be cakes and refreshments available.

Cazoo Epsom Derby

Where: Epsom Racecourse

When: Friday 3 June – Saturday 4 June

This year’s Epsom Derby takes place over the Jubilee weekend, meaning it will surely be an even bigger extravaganza. Ladies Day takes place on the Friday, so expect plenty of fantastic outfits among the celebrations.  Derby Day takes place on the Saturday with an official commemoration of the Platinum Jubilee. Her Majesty the Queen will mark the occasion by attending The Derby with members of the Royal Family.

Polesden Lacey’s Platinum Jubilee celebration

Where: Polesden Lacey, Great Bookham

When: Thursday 2 June – Sunday 5 June

The National Trust property located near Dorking is stepping back in time over the Bank Holiday Weekend with a variety of events to enjoy. Step back in time to enjoy fifties-themed music while sitting on the lawns or take the kids on a jubilee treasure hunt or on a miniature train ride in the gardens. It promises to be a weekend of fun!

Jubilee Celebrations on Westway Common

Where: Caterham

When: Thursday 2 June

Caterham Festival 2022 has a plethora of events taking place to celebrate the Jubilee weekend. One of the most poignant is the lighting of the Caterham Beacon on Westway common to mark the jubilee. During the afternoon there will be some silly games on the common including the pillow fight championships and the evening will concluded with the lighting of the beacon and the Oxted band performing their ‘last Night of the Proms’.
