Carnforth Town Council

Carnforth Big Weekend

On 6th February this year Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.

To celebrate this unprecedented anniversary, events and initiatives are taking place throughout the year, culminating in a four day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June.

The bank holiday will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate this historic milestone and Carnforth will be part of it!

In collaboration with local community groups, businesses and schools the Town Council is planning activities over the four days including a national Beacon lighting; a Sports Day; ‘Royalty’ Street Festival; Sunday Service and supporting street parties.

This will be a huge undertaking and we will need plenty of stewards and volunteers for a wide variety of activities. If you can help, please contact Leah Longhorn, Carnforth Town Council Administrative Officer by emailing: or call 07846256006
