Join us for a week of right royal fun and experience a blast from the past as we commemorate previous coronations and jubilees throughout history!
Don your best red, white and blue outfits and join us as we celebrate past monarchs, from Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee all the way to Queen Elizabeth II’s present day Platinum Jubilee. Meet a whole host of characters who need help with their celebrations – there’s a street party to prepare for and you don’t want to miss it!
Take part in our Jubilee craft activities, decorate a souvenir plate to take home or help to decorate the Museum in time for the street party. What will you make to contribute to the celebration? Don’t forget to watch out for our bossy party planner – she may need help with her preparations!
Join our street party from 11:30am onwards. Then come along to our grand Jubilee parade at 1:30pm as we process through the Museum, ending our parade on the Boat Dock as we celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s reign with a rousing rendition of God Save the Queen.
For the first time, we’re pushing our school room further in time to the 1950s to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation and her being Head of the Commonwealth. How well do you know your flags? Teacher will be checking!
Plus, there’s a chance to enjoy all your usual Museum favourites! Make a stop at Hobbs fish and chip shop or take a trip to our sweet shop for all your favourite sugary treats. From rides on our vintage transport to trying your hand at some traditional street games, there’s something for everyone.
