Join the Jubilee lunch!
From the Pageant Master, Bruno Peek:
From the guide you will see that Town Criers will be undertaking the ‘Proclamation’ at 2pm
announcing the lighting of the beacons that evening, Pipers playing ‘Diu Regnare’ at 9.35pm,
with Buglers and Cornet players undertaking the Bugle Call - ‘Majesty’ at 9.40pm, before
the beacons are lit at 9.45pm, and to coincide with their lighting, we are encouaging the
involvement of choirs of all sizes etc, to sing the ‘Song for the Commonwealth,’ providing
another colourful, community element of this Jubilee celebration, involving people of all ages
and walks of life, so we invite you to source these choirs locally from schools, churches, and
others, adding to your occasion that evening.
If you are able to obtain one of more of these, please be kind enough to register their involvement
in the ways outlined below as soon as possible or by no later than 30th May 2022.
Those taking part with the lighting a of Beacon, Pipers playing Diu Regnare,
with Buglers or Cornet players undertaking “Majesty,’ should register their
involvement by going to page 15, providing the information requested in
Step 1 and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org

May I also draw your attention to potential Lottery Funding:
The lighting of the Beacons on 2nd June, will be the first international, community event of The
Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend of 2nd - 5th June 2022, providing us all with the unique
opportunity of leading this special weekend of celebrations. This will also be the last chain
of beacons being lit during The Queen’s reign, so we all want to make it really special for our
Queen Elizabeth, the only monarch in history to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, so we do hope
you will help us all to achieve this by taking part on 2nd June this year.
I’d also like to invite you to join in with The Big Jubilee Lunch on Sunday 5 June 2022.
