Queen's Jubilee Celebration Event 2022

Your Jubilee - 3rd June 2022

What an amazing celebration of community it was. Thanks to everyone that took part.

 

Almost 450 local people ranging from 9 months to 90 years shared their ‘Coronation and Jubilee stories’ and had their portraits taken at this special, celebration of community event on Friday 3rd June Pierremont Hall in Broadstairs.

 

 

Specialist memory capture CIC ‘Pavement Pounders’ collected a range of stories from local people around their memories and experiences, to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee event, organised and hosted by Broadstairs Town Team.

Here is a link to the memories shared with us about The Coronation and Jubilees past from our community

Broadstairs’ Photographer Carlos Dominguez took everyone’s portraits in front of a specially designed backdrop, part of a competition won by local Schoolgirl Effie Reynolds. The centre piece of the portraits was a gold throne, borrowed for the day from local Hairdresser ‘Cuts Inc’. A Jubilee dressing up box and a ‘family’ of corgis donated by Keel Toys meant everyone could feel like a King or Queen for a day!

 

All participants will receive either a digital version or printed copy of their special portrait as part of the project.

 

 

 

 

A special, free afternoon tea was served, the craft tent enabled people to make their own crowns to wear and many younger participants also took advantage of the special free Jubilee facepainting on offer too.

 

 

 

This unique archive of images and recollections will form part of a digital archive for the town, for this and future generations to enjoy. The oral history element was a pilot for part of a planned longer term project to capture stories about other aspects of the town’s history from residents.

 

 

 

We are currently editing a ‘The Making of Broadstairs Jubilee Stories film‘ covering the planning, build up and day itself produced, which will be available to view her and on Youtube, a book of the collective portraits is planned and there is a hope for a full exhibition of the prints, if a suitable location can be found in Broadstairs.

 

 

 

The free event was made possible by sponsorship for the event from: ‘Empowering Communities’ Grant, administered by Asda, ‘Let's Create Jubilee Fund’, administered by Kent Community Foundation, The ‘Lottery Community Fund, and The Art's Council Queen's Jubilee Fund’.
