This event is in the past. This page is for information purposes only.

The Parks Trust Jubilee Beacon Lighting Ceremony is part of Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations which are taking place to commemorate 70 years of service to her country.

As our Monarch Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II reaches this unparalleled landmark in her reign it has been deemed appropriate to celebrate in a fitting and lasting way with the countrywide lighting of beacons. At exactly 9:45pm to coincide with lightings all across the world in a spectacular display, we will be lighting the Light Pyramid in Campbell Park, Milton Keynes.

Join us before the lighting of the beacon at The Milton Keynes Rose to enjoy music from Milton Keynes Brass who will be performing from 9pm as well as a speech from Vice Lord-Lieutenant Alexander Boswell. Hot drinks and ice-creams will also be available for purchase throughout the event.

Please note that there will be no public parking available at the event, parking available is at Centre:MK, from there you can walk over the bridge to the event.

The Light Pyramid was created by Liliane Lijn (2012). Find out more about the artwork here.
