The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Beacons


Tea At The White House has announced plans to light a Beacon for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on the evening of Thursday, June 2, 2022.

The Beacon is one of thousands being lit in the UK and the Commonwealth, and forms part of the official programme announced by Buckingham Palace for the Jubilee Weekend. The Beacon will be lit at 35 Main Street North, just outside of Tea At The White House and it will be one of over 2,022 lit all over the UK and the Commonwealth.
