The UK has a long tradition of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with the lighting of beacons, and the Platinum Jubilee is no exception.

To celebrate and commemorate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, over 1,500 beacons will be lit throughout the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories. In addition, for the first time, beacons will also be lit in each of the capital cities of the Commonwealth with the Principal Beacon being lit in a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

Peacehaven Town Council will be hosting its Jubilee Beacon Lighting on Thursday 2nd June at 9:15 p.m. at the War Memorial, Meridian Park, Meridian Way, Peacehaven, BN10 8NF.

Everyone is welcome to come along and join in this special occasion to mark not only Her Majesty’s 90 reign, but also to enjoy a unique event to start the very special Platinum Jubilee weekend celebrations.
