Celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with Michael Graham

When the country celebrates the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this week, it will be an unprecedented event in British history. A special extended bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June will mark the event and almost 2,000 street parties and 1,400 public events are set to take place.

Here at Michael Graham we have also been busy over the last six months getting ready to join the nation in celebrating Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Our marketing department has been in over-drive, joining in with different communities across our region as we promote and celebrate the very best of British and come together as one nation at this jubilant time.

Over the last few months we have collaborated with local communities as they too have prepared to celebrate with the nation. Almost every village and town in our region has an event planned, from village green picnics to entire town festivals. Here are just a few of the events we are delighted to sponsor – the Paulerspury’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations, Hartwell’s Jubilee Craft Fair, Tingewick’s Jubilee Event and a Platinum Jubilee Garden Party at St Andrews Primary School in Hitchin.

Flags are flying on high streets right across our region, with red, white and blue decorating the streets. We are joining in with the party atmosphere in the community by dressing each of our branch windows with Platinum Jubilee inspired displays which will be illuminated both day and night to showcase the artwork of characteristically English village properties. 

We are also delighted to be back with a full events calendar packed into our summer schedule. The Herts County Show took place on Saturday 28th - Sunday 29th May and later in the summer we will have our regular stand at the Blakesley Show on Saturday 6 August and the Bucks County Show on Thursday 1 September. All three events are quintessentially English country shows offering everything you need for a fun family day out. This year, in honour of the Platinum Jubilee, our stand will be celebrating the Best of British. We invite you to join us to raise a glass to the Queen and enjoy the timeless British classics of fish and chips and strawberries and cream.

As your proud experts in British property, during this time of national celebration, we felt it the perfect moment to showcase a selection of the finest properties from our region on a grand scale. Throughout the year, we have been displaying the regions’ unique architectural heritage through our weekly pages of Country Life and we are delighted to be honouring a selection of our For Sale and Sold homes in the Platinum Jubilee Collector’s Issue of Country Life published on 25 May.

We hope you have a wonderful Platinum Jubilee weekend and if you would like to talk to us about buying, selling or renting this year we would love to hear from you. Call your local office today and talk to one of our local experts. We look forward to helping you with the next stage of your moving journey.
