We want you to be part of the Midsummer Jubilee Festival.
Sunday 26th June
Align your business with the grassroots community’s established values of collectiveness, collaboration, co-operation, connectivity, creativity, diversity and celebration.
Parkfest! Returns with a new flavour!
Our party with a purpose began in 2011 and ran for five years. This year, to celebrate the Queens’ Platinum Jubilee and all that is great about Luton, our community festival returns on Sunday 26th June from 2pm across Leagrave Park, spanning from Marsh House to the Pavilion and Sportsfield.
The Midsummer Jubilee Festival begins with a carnival-style tree procession to the tree planting site by some of Luton’s carnival/mas bands, alongside some of Luton’s spoken word artists.
As part of the Queens’ Green Canopy, with H.M. Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire, Helen Nellis, a fruit and nut orchard will be planted in Leagrave Park.
Following the procession, the festival will be opened by the Lord-Lieutenant and MC & DJ Lee Drummond. Lee will be hosting the festival stage in the jubilee garden until 6pm.
From 6pm, the stage opens at Marsh House for more local performances, taking the entertainment into the evening.
There will be a large stage area with performers from the local community, such as singers, dancers, poets, visual arts, d.j.s & m.c.s, children’s activities, stalls, workshops, exhibitions, 5-a-side football tournaments, and cricket.
Join us for entertainment and celebrate the diverse art, culture and heritage that Luton offers.
