Celebrations to mark Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

With Harrogate Borough Council

A programme of events is planned to help celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee this week.

From Thursday 2 June until Sunday 5 June, Valley Gardens in Harrogate will host a free four-day event for everyone to enjoy.

Entertainment and activities include fairground rides, magicians, character meet and greets, face painting, a climbing wall and live music performances.

There will also be an artisan market on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the Gardens' Sun Colonnade offering a selection of local produce, crafts and plants thanks to Little Bird Made.

Performances, shows and activities vary for each day. Full details can be found on our website.

Part of the Stray will also be transformed into Jubilee Square, with a large stage and big screen – broadcasting The Queen's Birthday Parade, Platinum Party at the Palace and other events from London – as well as a Harrogate mastermind quiz, dog show, live music and family-friendly films.

In addition to Jubilee Square, street entertainers will be performing across the four days in Harrogate town centre, which will be dressed with more than 5,000 metres of bunting to mark the occasion.
