The Yorkshire Coast Celebrates the Platinum Jubilee

This year sees Her Majesty The Queen become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service. That alone (despite the bonus extra bank holidays) is worth celebrating.

If you’re doing your own thing during the Jubilee weekend there are loads of great tips on how you can do that here.

If not then have no fear the Yorkshire Coast has a host of events you can get involved with. There are far too many to name but here are a few for starters. Please tell us about your events so we can help shout out about it to the rest of the Yorkshire Coast!
