RESIDENTS of Andover and beyond are invited to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in the town centre.

Andover has a long tradition of celebrating Royal Jubilees and significant moments in royal history and the people will once again be able to come out and celebrate.

On June 3 there will be a Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Street Festival, in Market Square, from 11am to 5pm. This is a free event for all ages, featuring a rich medley of food and drink, live music and dance, and an interactive arts trail.

The event aims to celebrate the rich diversity and talent of Andover and its residents in the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

There will be performances from local professional and amateur groups and students from Andover College throughout the day.

A street food market will include flavours from around the world, and African Drumming workshops will run throughout the day at Riverside Park.

To help you make a day of it there will also be royal-themed storytelling sessions, a magician, Punch and Judy show, and art workshops at various locations including The Chantry Centre, Andover Library, Chapel Arts Studios and Andover Museum.

All activities and performances are free of charge. For more information and full event line up visit
