The Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2-5 June 2022
Thursday 2 and Friday 3 June were nominated as Bank Holidays to mark Her Majesty The Queen's 70 years of service to the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth. This unusual four-day Bank Holiday weekend saw events both large and small take place, as people celebrated the momentous occasion.
At Honeywood Museum there were a number of very special Events and an Exhibition in place throughout the period.
