Queen’s Jubilee Beacon Lighting Ceremony

02/06/2022, 9pm Cathedral Green

As part of the long-standing tradition of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations, Derby will join over 1,500 other locations across the UK to light a beacon on Cathedral Green, near the Bonnie Prince Charlie statue.

From 9.35pm a lone piper will play Diu Regnare, followed at 9.40pm by Majesty, a bugle call especially written for the occasion. The lighting of the Beacon at 9.45pm will be accompanied by a choir singing Song for the Commonwealth.

Gather nearby to be part of this rousing ceremony, and be mesmerized by an atmospheric Fire Trail, created by Walk The Plank, until 11pm.
