Queen’s Diamond Jubilee events list

EventsThere are apparently more Jubilee Street Parties in the borough than in any other part of the country and throughout the weekend there are more local Jubilee events than you can shake a hand-held Union Jack at!

[Update] Full list of street closures over the weekend has been published by Richmond Council.


The increasingly famous “Union Jack House” on Wick Road. A poster in the window describes how residents were asked “Don’t forget to decorate your house for the Jubilee Street Party“. Consider that request satisfied! Now also featured on the Daily Mail’s Jubilee photo-article.

Events will be listed here alphabetically (& updated throughout the week) – these can be street parties, events at pubs & restuarants or in local schools and businesses. If your event is not listed, add a comment below and the list will be magically updated as if by the Queen herself with a Royal wave. You can login using WordPress, Facbook or Twitter (or just ping a message via Twitter itself to @Teddington_Town).
