About Queen’s Jubilee Beacon lighting ceremony, Bicester

The Platinum Jubilee Beacons will be the first community event held over the celebratory four-day Jubilee Weekend from 02 to 05 June 2022.

Bicester Heritage will provide a historic backdrop for the momentous Queen’s Jubilee Beacon lighting ceremony in Bicester and will be open to welcome you to the Wriggly Monkey Brewery in the lead up to the beacon lighting.

Then at 9.45pm, the Beacon will be lit in tandem with all beacons across the country, starting the Platinum Jubilee celebrations over the weekend in Bicester and across the UK.

This will coincide with more than 1500 beacons being lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, and one in each of the capital cities of Commonwealth countries in recognition of The Queen’s long and selfless service.

Once the Beacon is lit, feel free to retire back to the Wriggly Monkey Brewery before departing back home.

The event will be free to attend. However, you must be registered for free tickets to attend.
