Top ways to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee Bank Holiday 2022

The Queen’s Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend will mark Her Majesty The Queen becoming the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee after 70 years of service.  Therefore, it seems fitting that we celebrate all things British this weekend –from afternoon tea to a classic British Summer BBQ –Poundstretcher's got everything you need to celebrate the Queen’s big anniversary!  

Take part in a Street Party   

Gather your neighbours for a Street Party to celebrate the Jubilee in typical British fashion. The UK has a long history of street parties to celebrate the Jubilee, so expect to see union jack bunting lining the streets of Britain this weekend, along with hundreds of people feasting on beloved British party favourites such as Victoria Sponge, trifle, and lashings of scotch eggs! Remember to dish up your delicious offerings on a set of our Foil platters, so you can cram as many of those mini-Cornish pasties and pork pies on as you can!   

Make your own bunting!  

 Speaking of bunting –a great way to get the kids involved with the Jubilee festivities is by making their own bunting! With our pack of bright card, they can create their own Queen-inspired bunting to line the streets of their neighbourhood for all their friends and family to see. Then, add plenty of colour and sparkle with some glitter glue pens!  

A spot of afternoon tea 

What better way to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee than with a spot of traditional afternoon tea? Teach your little ones about Britain’s great love affair with tea with this Porcelain Tea Set 11 Pieces, perfect for pretend play to fuel their imaginations! Add some biscuits and cakes to the party, and it will feel like you’re at Buckingham Palace!  

Take part in some British sports  

Watch out, Wimbledon! We Brits know our way around a tennis court. Practice your backhand this Jubilee with our Tennis set, complete with 2 rackets and 2 balls, so that you can play with friends or family. It’s a great excuse to soak up the sunshine and stay active while celebrating our country’s cultural heritage! 

 BBQ in the garden  

Us Brits love a BBQ, whatever the weather or occasion. It’s become a Bank Holiday Tradition to have a barbie on the weekend, so what better way to celebrate the Jubilee than by rustling up some burgers and sausages for friends and family? Our single disposable BBQ is perfect for small gatherings and portable, making it ideal for taking to the beach, park or back garden.
