In honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, a ceremonial beacon will be lit at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital.

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital is one of a very small number of hospitals to participate in this celebratory ceremony in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

On 2nd June 2022, we will celebrate another unique milestone in our history, Her Majesty The Queen’s 70th year as our Monarch and Head of the Commonwealth – her Platinum Jubilee. It is a feat no previous monarch has achieved.

More than 2,022 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, and one in each of the capital cities of Commonwealth countries in recognition of The Queen’s long and selfless service. The beacons will enable local communities, individuals and organisations to pay tribute to her as part of the official Platinum Jubilee Weekend of celebrations from 2nd to 5th June 2022.

You are invited to take part in this very special occassion.

The time of this event is running 8pm – 10pm.
