Jubilee Vineyard Beacon Lighting Party

Jubilee Vineyard Beacon Lighting Party


Join your fellow wine lovers in our vineyard marquee to raise a glass to Queen Elizabeth II becoming the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. Thanks to the help of one of our Kenelm Club members, Digby is throwing a very special event during the upcoming four-day Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend in our new vineyard and we’d love to have you join us!

Why is this such a special honour? As part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, beacons are being lit across the whole of the UK in honour of Her Majesty’s 70th year. Beacons have been lit at Jubilees dating all the way back to 1897 and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors has a longstanding involvement with them. At each Jubilee, they are asked to light the Anchor Chain of beacons spanning the length and breadth of all four nations. These form the backbone and are the first beacons lit to signal the start of the celebrations. There are a total of 55 official beacons. There will be hundreds of others, but these 55 come from Buckingham Palace and are strictly controlled by the Pageant Master and the official beacon locations are registered on both the RICS and Buckingham Palace website. Via our club member and RICS, Digby will be a part of the Anchor Chain and one of the first in the world to light a Platinum Jubilee Beacon.
