Beacon Lighting

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee Beacons is the first community event of the four-day Jubilee Weekend, from 2 – 5 June 2022.

Blackpool will be taking part in the Community Beacons where thousands of beacons will be lit by communities, charities and different landmarks throughout the regions of the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, coming together to celebrate this magnificent milestone.

Beacon lighting has long been associated with celebrating major milestones, including Royal Jubilees, weddings and coronations. Dating all the way back to 1897, beacons were lit to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. Most recently, beacons have been used to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day and Her Majesty’s 90th birthday in 2016.
