Queen Elizabeth Platinum Jubilee LIVE

Sunday June 5 schedule

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant will complete the weekend extravaganza with Ed Sheeran, Sir Cliff Richard and Gary Lineker among stars set to take part.

Kicking off the event will be the bells of Westminster chiming as they did for the Queen’s coronation 70 years ago.

The Mounted Band of the Household Cavalry will then lead the Gold State Coach along a crowd-thronged pageant route back to Buckingham Palace.

Glittering stars will also take part, with Ed Sheeran performing in a carnival finale of The People’s Pageant along The Mall in London.

Other celebrities confirmed throughout the day include Sir Cliff Richard, Jeremy Irons, Gary Lineker, Bill Bailey and Gok Wan.

The £15 million pageant is being “made by the people for the people” and is a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience, organisers said.

It is set to bring to life iconic moments from the Queen’s reign as well as showcasing how society has changed over the past 70 years.

Highlights will include an aerial artist suspended under a vast helium balloon, known as a heliosphere, bearing the image of the Queen.

Other key moments will be a giant oak tree flanked with maypole dancers, a huge moving wedding cake sounding out Bollywood hits, a towering dragon and three-storey-high beasts.

Also on the Sunday, a Big Jubilee Lunch will also be held up and down the country on June 5, with over 60,000 people registered to host one of their own.

Events involved are set to range from world record attempts for the longest street party to back garden barbecues.
