Exmouth Raleigh Rotary Club has forged ahead with preparations to mark the Queen’s jubilee next year.
Rotarian Graham Kirby told the Journal this week: “With the great news of our Queen's Jubilee next year, I am prompted to advise that our Rotary club has already arranged the Exmouth celebrations at Exmouth Pavilion that Jubilee weekend.”
On Thursday, June 2, 2022, there will be a Jubilee Celebration Party with AJ’s Big Band featuring tables of ten, with a big dance floor and both bars all evening. No food but plenty of party stuff to have a great night in the Queen’s honour.
On Friday, June 3, 2022, it is the Jubilee Celebration Concert, starring the Exmouth Town Concert Band, with plenty of items on the programme celebrating Her Majesty’s last 70 years.
Don’t forget there are two Rotary concerts at Exmouth Pavilion this summer. They have been rescheduled already three times but now they are happening.
On Sunday, August 8, enjoy the 75th anniversary of VE and VJ Day with the SW Comms Band and Exmouth A Casella Chorus.
On Thursday, August 12, there is a Celebration Big Band Night with AJ's Big Band, also featuring a celebration of the 75th anniversary of VE Day and VJ Day. Tables of ten, big dance floor and bars open all evening. The organisers say why not go in 1940s dress?
All tickets are available from Exmouth Pavilion.
Graham added: “A great year of celebration and in August come out with family and friends for this big occasion.”
Nationally, there will be a four-day bank holiday weekend to mark the monarch’s 70 years on the throne.
National events will include a live concert featuring some of the world’s biggest stars, a service of thanksgiving and, perhaps the Queen’s own highlight, a day at the races.
The 2022 break will run from Thursday, June 2 until Sunday, June 5, with the late May bank holiday moving to June 2 to allow the extended break.
It is part of a planned year of events to mark the first time a British sovereign has been on the throne for seven decades.
The Queen and other royals will travel around the country carrying out a range of royal engagements culminating with the platinum jubilee weekend.
