There are now only 3 weeks to go until the whole Nation will be celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee!
With the upcoming Olympic games and a Jubilee year in which The Queen will become only the second British Monarch to reign for 60 years (along with her Great, Great-Grandmother, Queen Victoria) the British economy is to expect a much welcomed boost, with everyone looking forward to a 4 day weekend at the start of summer, along with the general ‘feel good factor’ the jubilee celebrations will create, as with the wedding of HRH Prince William & Kate Middleton in 2011.
Parties and celebrations will be held all over the commonwealth to mark this spectacular occasion, and the two day bank holiday will be well received by many!
Here at Alchemy HQ we will be celebrating the Friday before. With a bit of bunting, a piece of cake and some old school coronation chicken! We are expecting busy times here and we will be working hard to ensure our shops & sites are fully stocked for this great celebration!
