The Queen's Jubilee in Belfast

  • 2 to 5 June 2022

    A programme of events will take place over the extended bank holiday weekend (2 to 5 June) to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The events will have a special focus on community, intergenerational activities, and celebrating Belfast’s new communities. 

  • Activities and events

    Our events and activities will include:

    We will illuminate City Hall in purple on Sunday 5 June.

  • Step back in time to 1950s Belfast

    On Saturday 4 June, 2 Royal Avenue will be transformed into 1950s Belfast allowing visitors to take a step back in time and get a flavour of life in the city 70 years ago.

    The event will showcase some of the city’s best local talent through photography, film, fashion, song and storytelling, taking a creative look at people’s lives in Belfast in 1952.

    There will be intergenerational workshops and storytelling events, live music performances, a photography exhibition and film screenings. The venue’s café menu will be adapted to reflect popular foods and dishes from the time.
