Allington Jubilee Weekend

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022

Allington Events Timeline

2 - 5 June

The long Bank Holiday Jubilee weekend will provide four days of activity and entertainment for the whole village. Hopefully there really will be something for everyone. On Thursday we have a series of activities, including a Big Band, before joining the national celebrations when we light the Jubilee beacon. On Friday Side Street will be hosting a Street Party and in the evening the Music and Beer Festival will come to life. Much of Saturday will be focused on the playing field where there will be a petanque competition and more music and beer. The cars are the stars on Sunday when a range of classic and interesting vehicles will be on display at Allington Manor and the playing field. This page provides a timeline of events with links to more information. Everything will be free to attend with the exception of the headline live music events. All proceeds from these paid for activities go to Allington Playing Field.


Please be aware that the timings are indicative and subject to change. More information will be added in due course and several events will have links to more detailed news items. There is a form at the bottom of this page to request news items by email.
