Entertainment, Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Bunting Battle & Royal Visit Archive Footage

Location: St Sampsons Square
Jubilee Chair

The York BID are marking the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by dressing the city for the occasion.

The battle of the bunting will begin this week with the BID contributing to the celebrations by dressing the city centre in a whopping 3,500m of bunting to provide a party atmosphere and make an impact across every city centre street. Will anywhere have more bunting than York?!

During the Jubilee weekend the BID are inviting people to St Sampsons Square where they’ll be showing archive footage of the Queen’s visits to the North over the years on a big screen. Also on the screen will be family favourite ‘The Queens Corgi’ at 1pm daily, with plenty of deckchairs to chill in and patriotic flags.

The BID have also provided some union flag Giant Deck Chairs as part of the Jubilee celebrations in some of York’s loveliest parks and gardens – Dean’s Park, Middletons Hotel garden, St Anthony’s Garden and Museum Gardens.

Grab some refreshments from some of the great local businesses nearby, take a seat and soak up the atmosphere.
