Pembroke Castle is gearing up to join in the celebrations for the Queen’s upcoming Platinum Jubilee, which will be celebrated over four days starting on Thursday, June 2. Full details will be revealed in the coming weeks. However, we can disclose that a large outdoor screen will be in place for the four days so that all visitors to the castle will be able to see every minute of the national celebrations, while enjoying the stunning surroundings and everything the castle has to offer.
The main events that will be broadcast live on the Jubilee screen will include the Queen’s ‘Birthday Parade’ and the lighting of the Platinum Jubilee Beacons on June 2. On Friday, June 3 there will be a Service of Thanksgiving from St. Paul’s Cathedral. Saturday will see the Queen arriving by carriage at the Royal Ascot race meeting, and in the evening a ‘Platinum Party at the Palace’ concert. The finale will take place on Sunday with a ‘Platinum Jubilee Pageant’.
Castle Manager Jon Williams explained “We’ve always had a close connection with the Queen here, and there are plenty of people in Pembroke who still remember her visit to the Castle in 1955. So, it is great to be helping our visitors celebrate this historic occasion. The bunting is ready to go up and we’re looking forward to staging our first events in over two years.”
On each day of the celebrations the castle’s usual entry prices will apply and tickets will only be available on entry. Local residents can use their Annual Passes, and details can be found on www.pembrokecastle.co.uk. The Annual Pass deal for those who live in Pembrokeshire is only £9.35 per adult and £6.60 for children and seniors.
