Queens Platinum Jubilee

Our Jubilee weekend was certainly one to remember. Thank you to all those that came down to the Square and joined in with the festivities, supporting local businesses and musicians, and creating a brilliant atmosphere to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen.

BEACON LIGHTING – Thursday 2nd June 

With the sun shining late into the evening and a brilliant turnout from local residents, it was a jubilant occasion for all. David Foster played a number of great covers to kick off the event with a bang, followed by some fantastic performances from the Biggleswade Sea Cadets and Phoenix Chorus. Cllr Grant Fage, Mayor of Biggleswade, then gave a short speech before counting down with the crowd to the lighting of the beacon. Whilst the impressive flame then continued to burn, the crowd alongside Phoenix Chorus, performed a booming rendition of the national anthem to conclude a wonderful affair.

Whilst the weather was wet, it certainly didn’t dampen the spirit of those that joined in the fun, nor did it dampen the flame of the beacon once lit. It was another thoroughly enjoyable event for all those in attendance, especially the children when the straw bales were delivered. Another great series of performances put on once again by London Road Studios that kept the spirit of the celebrations alive through the wind and rain. Cllr Grant Fage provided another excellent speech along with some amusing improvisation whilst dealing with some ‘technical difficulties’ lighting the beacon once more.

Thanks again to all those in attendance. With special thanks to London Road Studios plus acts, Huxley Electrical, Stratton House, Biggleswade History Society, Dee Dees, Drink, Kirsty’s Cakes, Jamie Harris’ Funfair, St John’s Ambulance, Sweet Alley, Ami Howard, UK Ambulance Transport, Arena Security, Stagecoach Performing Arts, Phoenix Chorus, Biggleswade Sea Cadets, Age UK, Gunns Bakery, Chilli Pilates, Surfin Café and Stagecoach Performing Arts.
