Dunorlan Park to host Jubilee celebrations

Co-founder of Pickering - Polly Taylor

A series of events will take place at Dunorlan Park on Friday, June 3, starting at 12.45pm to mark Her Majesty’s 70 years on the throne.

At 1pm a military parade will be at the War Memorial attended by the Mayor and Vice Lord Lieutenant.

At 1.30pm a colourful carnival-style parade will head to Dunorlan Park’s events field via Monson, Calverley and Bayhall Roads.

The Big Jubilee Lunch is at 2pm.

During the afternoon there will be free attractions and performances for all the family including Caribbean music, some of the Queen’s favourite classical tunes from The Royal Tunbridge Wells Orpheus Male Voice Choir, jazz quartet The American Songbook, Kings of Bhangra dance display, a taste of musicals provided by Beyond The Barricade musical theatre concert and so much more.

The Friends of Dunorlan Park who, along with Tunbridge Wells Borough Council which owns the park, maintain the park to keep it looking lovely for everyone, and will have a promotional stall.

For families to enjoy, there will be a car show with a car from every decade of the Queen’s reign, face-painting, Punch & Judy shows, balloon-modelling, diggers and tractors to investigate and a full-size fire engine to explore.

Take a wander through the main body of the park and have a snack at the café which will be open until around 5pm.

Mark this historic day by joining the parade, take a picnic, visit the food stalls in the park and enjoy an afternoon of fun and entertainment.
