When is the Platinum Jubilee Pageant?

The Platinum Jubilee Pageant will kick off at 2.30pm on Sunday, 5th June. The incredible event will last for more than two hours, moving through Central London and coming to an end at 5pm right in front of Buckingham Palace.

What is the Platinum Jubilee Pageant?

This will be one star-studded event! A huge £15 million has been spent on the pageant which is split into four acts: For Queen and Country with a military parade; The Time of Our Lives which will explore seven decades of culture, music and fashion; Let’s Celebrate telling the story of the Queen’s life in 12 chapters with corgi puppets and carnival creations; and the Happy and Glorious musical spectacle which will see icons from the music, comedy, film and arts world. This is when Ed Sheeran will sing God Save the Queen - we can't wait!

How to watch the Platinum Jubilee Pageant in real life

If you’re hoping to watch the Jubilee Pageant in person, then you can grab a spot on the route - there are special viewing areas set up at Whitehall and along the Mall. You don't need tickets but you should turn up soon as it will be very crowded. According to the official schedule, the Pageant will start on Whitehall, turn under Admiralty Arch and then process up The Mall before finishing outside Buckingham Palace around Queen Victoria Memorial.
