Jubilee Beacon at Hoghton Tower

Posted on 27th May 2022 | Mark

Hoghton Tower will uphold a long tradition of celebrating Royal milestones with the lighting of a beacon on the evening of Thursday 2nd June.

We will be lighting an official Queen’s Jubilee beacon at 9.45pm. This will take place on the raised turret to the front right of the Tower. We would welcome the local community to come and witness the lighting of the beacon to mark the momentous occasion of her Platinum Jubilee.

More than 2,022 beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories, and one in each of the capital cities of Commonwealth countries, in recognition of The Queen’s long and selfless service.

Our country has long since celebrated Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with beacons – on top of mountains, church and cathedral towers, castle battlements, on town and village greens, country estates, parks and farms, along beaches and on cliff tops.

The beacons enable local communities, individuals and organisations to pay tribute to her as part of the official Platinum Jubilee Weekend of celebrations from 2nd to 5th June 2022. There are four types of beacons being lit for this historic occasion.

For anyone wishing to attend the lighting of the beacon at Hoghton Tower, we will open from 7-10pm. Access will be available on the lawned tilting greens with a good view of the beacon. Picnics, blankets and folding chairs are permitted, but please do take any rubbish home with you.

Strictly no barbecues please. Well behaved dogs are permitted on leads around the tilting greens but not inside the courtyards. Access available to toilet facilities.

Hoghton Tower’s House and Tearoom is open as normal during the day on June 2nd (11am-4pm).
