What is the Platinum Jubilee Pageant?

One of the major events taking place on the Jubilee weekend is the pageant which will take place at Buckingham Palace and in the surrounding streets.

The 3km route will be similar to that taken by the Queen at her coronation in 1953.

Many British national treasures will be involved such as Ed Sheeran, Sir Cliff Richard, Gary Lineker, Dame Shirley Bassey, Bill Bailey and Gok Wan.

The pageant will be split into four acts: For Queen and Country, The Time of Our Lives, Let’s Celebrate, and Happy and Glorious, all organised by pageant master Adrian Evans LVO.

Act one will be a military spectacle, according to the official pageant website, celebrating the UK armed forces as well as military from across the Commonwealth.

Second act, The Time of Our Lives, will be a large production showcasing popular culture in Britain from 1950s through to modern times.

This is where 150 national treasures will take part to showcase and celebrate how they have helped shape British culture since the Queen’s coronation.

Let’s Celebrate consists of street performances, taking concepts from Carnival, May Day, Mela, Fiesta and Mardi Gras to make one large creative party.

It will feature performers from across the UK, who have all created their own pieces for the pageant.

Finally, everyone will gather around the Queen Victoria memorial outside Buckingham Palace to sing the national anthem for act four, featuring a special tribute to Her Majesty.
