Platinum Jubilee: How Jersey Celebrated

There have been many memorable moments as Jersey celebrated the Queen's 70 year reign.

It's been a joyous four days across the island as communities came together to pay tribute to Her Majesty's seven decades of dedicated service.

Four days of events culminate with the street party on Broad Street, with afternoon tea served to hundreds of ticket-holders on a table running the length of Broad Street.


The weekend's events also includes a Service of Thanksgiving, a pageant, and the lighting of the Platinum Jubilee beacons.

Around 3,500 people were on Glacis Field on Thursday to join the nationwide beacon-lighting event.

Organised by the Bailiff's Office, it concluded with a spectacular laser show.

Many islanders headed to parish events or held their own street parties, or found other ways of saying 'thank you' to our monarch.



The Queen was even spotted on a balcony in St Brelade...
