The Centre has a 3-day schedule planned over the long weekend, packed with entertainment, activities, games and live music to celebrate, including Chesterfield’s biggest street party plus all live events streamed on the big screen.
On Thursday 2nd June Vicar Lane will be live streaming the ‘Trooping of the Colour Parade’ on our big screen. Visitors will be able to pull up one of the centre’s new Union Jack deckchairs, and get the best seat in the house as the nation watches the parade start from Buckingham Palace at 10am. From 1pm join Vicar Lane for live music and entertainment, as the centre kicks off its Jubilee FestiVL.
‘A right royal knees up’ takes place on Saturday 4th June as the centre gears up to party the day away from 11am with the Platinum Party at the Palace. The party will be broadcast live on the Vicar Lane big screen located under the ‘AstroTurf area’ in St James Square. This will be the meeting point to host lots of free fun and games for the whole family.
There will be Giant Chess, Connect Four, Giant Jenga and Ping Pong as well as, lawn games hosted by a Beefeater for the children such as egg and spoon races and bean bag throwing to celebrate in true British style with prizes to be won!
On Sunday 5th June visitors are invited to take part in Chesterfield’s biggest street party, where tables will be laid out from 11am to enjoy lunch alfresco & have photos taken with guardsmen statues or the iconic red floral phone box. It will be on this day too that Vicar Lane will acknowledge art entries they’ve had from local primary schools who will submit their own drawings of the queen and have them displayed up on the screen for all to enjoy.
Shaun Brown, Centre Manager, Vicar Lane said, “We’re really looking forward to hosting our Jubilee FestiVL programme. It’s the first event we’ve held post pandemic so we can’t wait to welcome our shoppers and wider audience and their families to get involved and enjoy the long weekend with us”.
