2012 marks the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Accession to the Throne.

To commemorate this significant occasion, the NSW Government is pleased to partner with ClubsNSW to encourage clubs across the state to support the Diamond Jubilee by hosting a celebratory lunch or an alternative activity appropriate for, and meaningful to, their community.

This significant occasion provides a unique opportunity to celebrate the Queen’s 60 years as Monarch. By hosting a Diamond Jubilee themed event, local clubs can provide an environment for their community to gather with their neighbours and acknowledge the contributions The Queen has made as the Head of the Commonwealth over the past 60 years.

Official celebrations to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee in NSW will be held around The Queen’s Birthday long weekend (9 – 11 June, 2012). Clubs are encouraged to celebrate in a way that is meaningful to their community, and may include hosting a Queen’s Hat Parade, Tea Party, Royal Trivia session or a “Feast Fit for a Queen.” No matter how big or small, every celebration will contribute to the state-wide program of events.

For event ideas and resources to assist your club in planning an event, please visit our Resources section on the right of the NSW Diamond Jubilee webpage - click here.
