Big Screen in Cardiff’s Bute Park will broadcast Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations
A big screen will be set up in Cardiff’s Bute Park so people can watch the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Screens broadcasting the events will also be placed in The Mall in London and Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh across the bank holiday weekend.
Events taking places to celebrate the Queen’s 70-year reign include Trooping the Colour, a service of thanksgiving, a concert and a pageant.
The screens are organised by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
The department has also launched an activity pack for children to help them learn about the Queen’s reign, including articles about how the country has changed in the last seven decades.
According to the DCM, more than 70,000 big Jubilee lunches are planned in the four UK nations over a four day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June.
Organisers say Bute Park, will host “an afternoon of celebrations” with families invited to enjoy the Jubilee pageant on a large screen along with entertainment from the bandstand.
Events taking place in London will be broadcast on BBC, Sky and ITV.
The DCMS said the BBC is offering local communities a special one-off TV licence dispensation so they can screen it on a big screen they organise themselves.
The plans will allow those celebrating in town halls, community centres and streets to show live programmes throughout the weekend without needing to purchase a licence.
Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries said: “In less than a month we will come together as a nation and Commonwealth to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s 70-year reign.
“No other British monarch has reached this milestone and we will celebrate it with tradition, pomp and circumstance.
“I hope that people and communities across the country will come together to pay tribute to Her Majesty – whether that be to watch on big screens or toasting Her Majesty at a Big Jubilee Lunch with their neighbours or coming together in their local village hall.”
Support our Nation today
For the price of a cup of coffee a month you can help us create an independent, not-for-profit, national news service for the people of Wales, by the people of Wales.
So while people are struggling to even survive, THIS, is what councils are wasting money on. Showing off tax payer funded oppulence while people starve. Absolute disgrace.

God Save The Queen,
This fascist regime.
I always thought that was the English family that murderd thousands of Welsh people and also our last true royal family are we going mad our old leaders must be turning in they’re graves
This is only the beginning, you wait until she pops her clogs, we’ll have her funeral, Charlie’s coronation and another English Prince of Wales forced on us, perfect time for some direct action to show they are not our Royal family.
.. and if they can tuck all 3 events into one month they’ll probably award us serfs a Bank Holiday month, but with no pay !!
Bute park is always a lovely place to be and .. oh .. wait a minute. What’s happening there? Really? Well clearly not ALWAYS a lovely place to be but please do return and visit later in June when it can once again be seen at its’ best.
Just ignore it, and every other piece of Imperialist propaganda that floats across from London.
A tv in the local Con club will suffice
While the poor are starving, this woman can afford to give one of her sons £12 million, to settle a case out of court, disgusting.
What a vulgar waste of Welsh taxpayers money. 🙄
Would love alternative events to be held on the weekend for those who do not follow the unionist Brit mantra. I suspect even in England there’s a large percentage of people who are not royalists.
But with media like the BBC, daily mail and express, we will be instructed to celebrate ‘our dear leader’ and comply.
Talk about Stockholm syndrome ! When are we going to stop fawning over this family ! Exactly what have they done for Cymru?
Hope will be your master Nadine….. Now get back on b your knees you sychophant.
Will we need tickets or can we just turn up?
If the weather is good this will be a fun event. The Queen has always been popular here in Cardiff.
I don’t know if popular is the right word.Maybe there are some similarities with North Korea in terms of believing everything that people are told.
We must recognise this important historical finale of service by QE2…..and the work done across the lifetimes of most of us in the nations of these Islands. Well over 80 per cent of our own nation respect the work of this 97 year old lady who has put up with a range of fawning and forgetable PMs, having to host Heads of State banquets for mass murders, dictators and crooks from across the world and deal with an often disfunctional family. As we move into what is likley to be a brief transitional Regency we need a national conversation on… Read more »
Disgusting, imperialism. Cymru must say f off
On a previous post by Nation about some alcoholic drink being named for The Jubilee, Royalist bots were labeling any criticism of The Monarchy as racist.
I’m off my rockers tonight. Ignore my comment about licking the queen’s feet.
Sounds like something out of North Korea
