Let's Go To The Beach!
Yate Shopping Centre
Yate’s Beach will herald a series of themed events to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The Beach will formally be opened a week earlier than planned on Friday, 20th May in the Shopping Centre’s Central Square and will stay open throughout the summer months until 3rd September 2022.
It will as usual feature deck chairs, buckets and spades and free weekly entertainment throughout the summer holidays along with a wide selection of entertainment acts.
Over the Queens Platinum Jubilee Holiday - and half term for many, 30th May through to the 5th June 2022 - there will be a series of themed events reflecting the spirit of Her Majesty’s reign.
Andrew Lowrey, Yate Shopping Centre Manager, said: “The Beach is always a highlight in our annual calendar signalling the start of the summer season. It also draws many visitors into the Centre so they can support the local traders.
“This year is extra important as it is The Queen’s 70th Anniversary on the throne and we will be ensuring this is marked with special events and with special floral displays. We encourage everybody to get involved in what will be a week to remember”.
In addition, the Centre has commissioned jubilee themed flower displays throughout Yate including a display on the link road roundabout which we sponsor annually and over 100 hanging baskets to be hung around the town.
Jubilee events planned include:
• Children’s Jubilee Craft Day on Thursday, 2nd June
• A Calypso Steel Band on Friday, 3rd June
• Wartime Band & Singing on Saturday, 4th June
• Children’s Jubilee Party at The Beach on Sunday, 5th June.
