Lichfield Cathedral has unveiled a programme of events to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

A special beacon will be lit, while the building itself will also be illuminated in red, white and blue during the celebrations weekend.

There will also be a performance of Song of the Commonwealth by the Lichfield Cathedral Jubilee Choir, while a piper and bugler will also play over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Finishing off the celebrations will be a special Choral Eucharist 10.30am on 5th June.

People visiting are also asked to donate to help those less fortunate, with collections being accepted on behalf of Lichfield Foodbank.

The Very Rev’d Adrian Dorber, Dean of Lichfield, said:

“On this joyous occasion, as we all celebrate in our own ways, it should be at the forefront of minds that there are thousands of households in the UK who are struggling to put food on the table.

“We are asking that all Lichfeldians, as they make their preparations for the extended bank holiday weekend, consider making a donation to Lichfield Foodbank.”

The Very Rev’d Adrian Dorber, Dean of Lichfield

A donation point is available at Lichfield Cathedral every day, but a dedicated ‘Big Jubilee Lunch’ donation area will in place from 28th May until 3rd June.
