Celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee by joining in this spectacular evening of music, fire and performance!

A network of over 4,000 Beacons will be lit up across the width and breadth of the country at Historic sites such as Hadrian’s Wall, Heritage Houses and stately homes in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The coasts of Britain will be ignited to shine out to all of the UK, the Commonwealth and UK Overseas Territories, the top of The Four Peak’s; Ben Nevis, Mount Snowden, Scafell Pike, Slieve Donard will illuminate the land for all to see from far and wide.

Each of the Beacons will be lit by a variety of community groups, charitable organisations and individuals. Many of the Beacon’s will be coordinated by the Marine Society, Sea Cadets, Air Training Corps, Army Cadets and Combined Cadet Force.

The Worshipful the Mayor of the London Borough of Hounslow Pritam Grewal, will be addressing the Borough’s community and guests before lighting the Hounslow Beacon at 10.15 pm, the same time as other Local Authorities, Community Councils, Associations, Societies and Committees in the UK.

With the Beacon burning brightly, the Dragon Heart Beats will be performing with their fire breathing dragon around the Beacon and through crowds to powerful, percussive, hypnotic drum beats and a mesmerising performance of fire and pyrotechnics to light up the night sky.
