Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations in Birmingham

Enjoy with us the celebrations held across Birmingham during the 4 day period (Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June 2022) of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. 

In memory of Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022).

The Platinum Jubilee weekend was held from the 2nd to 5th June 2022.

The Queen died on 8th September 2022, aged 96, heralding the ascension of her son as King Charles III (then aged 73).
