Town Hall hosts celebration of Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee
Residents are invited to a patriotic celebration at Great Yarmouth Town Hall on Saturday 4 June to mark Her Majesty's 70-year reign.
The celebration dinner will take place in the elegant Assembly Room, a venue steeped in history in its own right and overlooking the historic South Quay. This unique event begins at 7pm and finishes at 11pm.
Guests will feast on a four-course banquet, followed by coffee and mints. There will also be alcoholic and soft drinks available from the fully licensed bar.
Entertainment will be provided by local soloist singer, Daniella Beck, who will be taking guests on a nostalgic musical journey through the decades, before ending with a 'Last Night of the Proms' style finale. Audience participation and flag waving are encouraged.
As well as the formal dinner event, there are also plans for several free public events to mark the Platinum Jubilee. This includes the lighting of a beacon lighting in Anchor Gardens, followed by fireworks on Thursday 2 June; a civic jubilee service at Great Yarmouth Minster, led by Revd Simon Ward on Friday 3 June; and Big Jubilee Lunch events at Great Yarmouth Market Place and Pier Gardens in Gorleston on Sunday 5 June.
Great Yarmouth Mayor Adrian Thompson said: "This event is just one of the many ways we are inviting residents to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
"If residents cannot make the celebration at the Town Hall, there are several other community events which we are hosting that we encourage people to get involved with."
Tickets are priced at just £42 per person and can be ordered via the events team on email@example.com or 01493 846154.
