Nominations have officially opened for the Mayor of Worcester’s Big Jubilee Lunch.

The Mayor of Worcester will be holding a special Big Jubilee Lunch on Sunday, June 5.

The event is part of the city’s celebrations of Her Majesty The Queen becoming the first monarch in history to reign for 70 years.

Nominations are now open for members of community groups and organisations, or individuals who have gone above and beyond the norm to support and enhance the lives of others in Worcester.

The event at the Guildhall will see the city’s first citizen joined by members of the community who have contributed to the well-being of the city over the last two very difficult and challenging years.

The two-course lunch is being organised both to thank the attendees for their efforts in supporting Worcester’s communities and as a celebration of The Queen’s remarkable reign.

It will form part of a major programme of celebrations of the Platinum Jubilee that will also include street parties across the city, the lighting of a beacon in Fort Royal Park, and museum and art exhibitions.

In order to make a nomination for the lunch, you need to be over the age of 18.

The nomination needs to include an explanation of no more than 200 words, on why your nominee should attend the Big Jubilee Lunch. 

Attendees are set to be chosen at random from the nominations received. Any attendees under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult.

Nominations need to be submitted no later than midday on April 29 at

Nominations can be made here.

The Platinum Jubilee celebrations begin on Thursday, June 2 and throughout the weekend to mark the accession of Queen Elizabeth II on 6 February 1952.
