There are many ways you can get involved in Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in 2022. Trowbridge Town Council will be organising a special celebration in the park for local school children but why not think about organising your own street party or joining the Big Jubilee Lunch to celebrate within your own community?
Wiltshire Council have put together some great information to make it as simple as possible to arrange an event for the Jubilee. Take a look at their website for useful information and guidance on what you need to do by clicking here.
The UK has a long history of organised street parties to celebrate national events. Why not organise one for your neighbours for the Platinum Jubilee?
You can host parties throughout the extended bank holiday weekend or as part of The Big Jubilee Lunch.
If you’re planning to host a street party, you can share the details for people to find out more on the Jubilee online interactive map by clicking here.
The Big Jubilee Lunch
To coincide with the Platinum Jubilee, The Big Jubilee Lunch will be taking place on Sunday 5 June.
Every year since the idea began in 2009, The Big Lunch has encouraged communities to celebrate their connections and get to know each other a little bit better.
Following the success of the first Big Jubilee Lunch, to celebrate Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012, The Big Lunch will bring the Jubilee celebrations into the heart of every community again in 2022.

Trowbridge In Jubilee Bloom With Trowbridge Chamber of Commerce
To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Trowbridge businesses, residents, community groups, schools, churches and care homes are invited to get creative and display colourful planters, window boxes and floral creations in front of their properties or in their windows, from May to September, to bring a festive, floral outlook to Trowbridge Town centre and surrounding areas.
SUSTAINABILITY – Jubilee Bloom participants are encouraged to use sustainable planting, choosing plants that require minimal watering, no plastics, chemicals or compost containing peat, and ideally using perennial plants that can be replanted afterwards.
UPCYCLE – Organisers are looking for imaginative use of fun, upcycled objects such as milk churns, packing crates and vintage objects, which can be picked from local charity and vintage shops, or perhaps recycled cans, tins and containers. The best local business displays will be featured on the Trowbridge Chamber of Commerce website and social media.
ART COMPETITION – Running alongside the event, Trowbridge Town Council is organising a schools Jubilee in Bloom art competition and the winning designs will go on public display in the Trowbridge Town Hall gallery.
PERMISSIONS – Businesses that would like to display planters on the pavement outside their premises are asked to contact the Trowbridge Chamber of Commerce, which is coordinating approval for public space displays with Wiltshire Council Highways. Planters will need to leave a minimum of 1.5m of clear pavement space for public access and be covered by public liability insurance.
