Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022

This year sees her Majesty The Queen become the first British Monarch to reach the milestone of a 70-year reign.  An extended Bank Holiday from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June 2022 will provide the nation with an opportunity to come together and celebrate this historic occasion.

Communities across Staffordshire are encouraged to take part in the celebrations by hosting their own events. Activities could include street parties, summer fayres, the planting of trees and craft endeavours to make your own platinum emblem or crown. 

You can register your event or find out more about events taking place in Staffordshire here.  

How to throw Street Parties

In Staffordshire, celebratory events are being encouraged across the Jubilee weekend and residents can now apply to hold a street party to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Event requirement:

  • For residents/neighbours only
  • Publicised to residents only
  • Closure of residential roads only
  • Not charge for entry to the event
  • Not damage the road surface
  • Not disrupt local residents with music or other noise.
  • No licences normally necessary unless the sale of alcohol is involved 
  • No formal risk assessment needed 

You can find further information, risk assessments and insurance information on The Street Party Site.

Road Closure

When organising your own street party, if your event requires a possible road closure you will need to seek permission by informing the council. The council makes no charge for road closures for residential street parties that do not affect a classified road, bus route or traffic sensitive route.
