Diamond Jubilee Weekend


Celebrations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee kick off this weekend, with a host of street parties around Cardiff – including one or two in Roath!

The weekend also sees the return of the annual neighbourly feast that is The Big Lunch, taking the theme of the Jubilee for this year’s events.

Our friends at Cardiff Blogs have organised a Jubilee Big Lunch in Bute Park on Sunday – details are here, on their lovely new website, if you’d like to join in – all are welcome.

The Mackintosh Centre, Keppoch Street, is hosting a Big Lunch at two sittings on Monday at 11am-1pm and 1.30pm-3.30pm.  Bring some food to share.

Jessica Best of YourCardiff has mapped both Jubilee and Big Lunch events in Cardiff here.

Are you doing anything in Roath to celebrate the Jubilee?  Or just a party or event to take advantage of the extra bank holiday?  Let us know, and we can feature it on the blog, and we’d love to see your photos too.

Whatever you’re doing this weekend, have fun – we hope the sun shines for you!
