Serving the people of Husbands Bosworth

WELCOME to our PLATINUM JUBILEE CELEBRATIONS page.

Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee is being celebrated throughout the long Bank Holiday weekend of 2nd - 5th June 2020. Husbands Bosworth Parish Council has arranged special events on Thursday 2nd June and Sunday 5th June to recognise this once-in-a-lifetime occasion. See below for further details.

THURSDAY 2ND JUNE 2022

This the day when beacons will be lit in cities, towns and villages all over the UK and in many Commonwealth countries.

Meet us by the Millennium Sports Pavilion on the Kilworth Road from 8.30 pm and treat yourself to a free bacon bap, veggie-burger or a soft drink. Enjoy the company of your friends and neighbours until we start to gather around the Beacon in the corner of the field.

You'll hear the strains of some music specially composed for this special occasion at around 9.40 pm, and then the official beacon-lighting will take place at 9.45 pm, in line with thousands of other beacons.

What a beautiful photo of Queen Elizabeth
