This year the Queen becomes the first British monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. A series of celebrations will take place throughout the year to mark the occasion.

We have put together all you need to know if you wish to celebrate the Jubilee in Huntingdonshire.

Events and activities organised across Cambridgeshire can be found on the Cambridgeshire County Council website.

If a street party or parade/carnival is planned on the public highway, a formal application for a street closure will be required. Further information is available on Cambridgeshire County Council’s Highway Events page.

Over the bank holiday there may be some temporary road closures. Road Closures are managed by Cambridgeshire County Council.
