In June 2012 Queen Elizabeth will become the only other British monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee since Queen Victoria in 1897.

The high point of the celebrations will be the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on June 3, 2012 with up to a thousand boats on the river led by the Royal Barge.

The flotilla will be bolstered with passenger boats carrying up to thirty thousand flag-waving members of the public placed centre stage (or rather mid-river) in this floating celebration of the Queen’s sixty year reign. The spectacle will be further enhanced with music barges, boats spouting geysers and pyrotechnic barges spitting smoke and daytime fireworks. And there will be specially constructed elements like a floating belfry, its chiming bells answered by those from riverbank churches.

The UK will also witness street parties, exhibitions and many other activities to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.

To join the party in London and across the UK, call Lighthouse on (0) 9818905024 or email theworld@golighthouse.in.
