What’s On

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations


Lympstone Community Hub has planned a number of exiting events for the weekend of the Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations. There is a pull-out of the 4 days of events in the centre of this Herald. A full 12 page programme will be published in mid-May and will be available from village outlets. All Jubilee venues will be free to enter but there may be a small charge for some activities. Full details will also be published on the Lympstone Website and Facebook page.

This event is organised by Lympstone Community Hub. We do not seek to make a profit. Any profits from Saturday’s events go to Lympstone school and pre-school, while any profits from Sunday’s events go to the Royal Marines Charity.

Events may be weather dependent and late changes to the programme may occur.  Check Facebook and Twitter for updates.
