A Queen is Crowned Film Viewing

A Queen is Crowned Film Viewing

Thu, 02 Jun 2022 10:00

To celebrate The Queen's Platinum Jubilee, Dronfield Town Council will be showing a screening of the only feature-length Technicolor record of the Coronation itself, continuous between 10am and 4pm on June 2nd, 2022.

When Queen Elizabeth the Second was crowned on June 2nd, 1953, many of Britain's leading cinematic artists were commissioned to create this wonderful record of the event. Narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier, it conveys the sights and sounds, the pomp and pageantry, the very spirit of that unforgettable day. Oscar-nominee and BAFTA-winner, A Queen is Crowned is one of the greatest films of an historical event ever made.

Also included is Palaces of a Queen - a 1966 documentary touring the six royal palaces: Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, St. James's Palace, Hampton Court, Kensington Palace and Holyrood House.

Beacon Lighting Celebration Event for The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Beacon Lighting Celebration Event for The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Thu, 02 Jun 2022 21:00

Dronfield Town Council is planning a Beacon Lighting Celebration Event to mark and celebrate the historic event of the Queens Platinum Jubilee. The event, to be held at 9pm on Thursday 2nd June 2022, will celebrate and reflect on The Queen's 70 years of service to our country.

On the evening of Thursday June 2nd a beacon will be lit at Sindelfingen Park. This is one of a minimum of 1500 beacons that will be lit cross the United Kingdom to mark the occasion. We hope as many residents as possible will attend to help us celebrate the event.

The lighting of the Beacon will be preceded by a short service led by Reverend Ian Webb to give thanks for the Queen's long reign and service to her country. The evening will also include a speech from the Mayor and performances from Sheffield Concert band and Dronfield Ladies Voices Choir before the lighting of the beacon at 9:45pm.
