during the long weekend of the 2nd to the 5th June 2022

There’s something for everyone, young and old, and we’d all love it if you could join in the fun on any or all of the days we have planned, starting on Thursday the 2nd June with a huge street party outside the church in The Street.   With free BBQ food and an alcoholic or soft drink for every parishioner (and a bar for those that like more than one), we have live music planned from two local bands, street games and the lighting of the beacon in its new home.

Explore our rich history and marvel at the flower displays in the church on Friday before wandering down to the Village Hall for tea, coffee and cake while you risk some pennies on our Tombola.

Then on Saturday it’s the children’s tea party for those of us under the age of 16, with free food, drink and village games on the green at Wilds Way (or in the Village Hall if the weather isn’t kind to us).

And then on Sunday put your walking boots on and join us as we explore the footpaths that weave their way, criss-crossing our beautiful parish, ending up at the MADRA for a BBQ and drinks.   And if you don’t fancy the walk but do fancy the BBQ and a drink, you can meet our intrepid walkers there.

fun for all the family during four days of celebrations

A Commemorative Gift for our children

Every young resident of our parish who is under 16 on 2nd May will receive a specially commissioned commemorative gift, something which the Jubilee Committee hopes will invoke happy memories of this very special day for them in the years they have ahead of them.
Of course, we can’t tell you what it is… because then it wouldn’t be a surprise!

First Responders | the chosen charity

Any net proceeds that are raised during the four days will be going to the organiser’s chosen charity, First Responders, who do a wonderful job and will be keeping us all safe during the street party on the Thursday evening as well as putting on a demonstration of how to use our defibrillator on the Friday afternoon in the Village Hall.

The people that made it happen…

For the first time in many years, all of the village’s clubs, groups, committees, together with St Peter & St Paul’s church, MADRA and the Parish Council are working together to make the weekend of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations a weekend to remember for everyone in the parish

And they have been joined by some wonderfully talented villagers who have helped to sparkle magic over the whole weekend

Everyone has given their time and efforts freely to make this a Knapton event no Knaptonian should miss
