As the sun sets on 2 June, join us at Guildford Cathedral for a unique opportunity to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen and her achievements.

Spectators are invited to gather outside the front of the cathedral from 9.00pm in order to watch a short civic ceremony from 9.30pm, including a piper, bugler and choir performing music specially commissioned for the Jubilee. The beacon lighting can be viewed at 9.45pm from the south side of the cathedral.

The beacon will be lit on the north side of The Mount to give good views from the cathedral and the north of the town centre. Please avoid The Mount as there will be no parking available.
