Final preparations taking place for Exeter’s big Jubilee street party
Final preparations are underway for Exeter’s Jubilee street party celebrations on Thursday 2 June.
The big Jubilee celebration takes place in the High Street, Cathedral Green, Princesshay, Guildhall Shopping centre and elsewhere in the city centre, from 11am until 3pm.
Community groups and organisations from across the city will converge on Cathedral Green to take part in the celebrations.
There will be a host of family fun and entertainment for people of all ages throughout the day.
Benches and tables will be set up in the High Street for people to enjoy the Street Party. There’s no need to book and tables can’t be reserved – just turn up, find a space and enjoy the fun.
As well as live music and people can bring their own picnic or click and collect from nearby restaurants.
Alcohol is not permitted to be consumed in the High Street.
Music across the city will be provided by The Liberty Sisters, The Footloose Four, Chris Pope, Exeter Railway Band, Devon and Somerset Fire Rescue Band and Exeter Jazz Orchestra.
The amazing Beach Bar in Princesshay Square serving Jubilee inspired drinks during the event.
The Devon General Omnibus Trust will be displaying a vintage vehicle – a VDV 817 which dates from 1957. It is representative of the open-platform rear-entrance AEC Regent V double-deckers purchased by Devon General for use on Exeter city services which ran until 1971.
A beacon will be lit at Exeter Quayside in the evening.
