Share your memories – how did you celebrate previous royal events in Alnwick?

As we look forward to Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June, Alnwick Town Council would love to see your royal memories or photographs from the past 70 years.

Can you remember the Coronation or did your family tell you how they celebrated 2nd June 1953?

More recently, did you take pictures of The Queen and Prince Philip when they came to Alnwick in 2011?

We would love to see your photos if you had a street party for her Silver Jubilee in 1977 or her Golden Jubilee in 2002.

Many thanks to Elspeth Dodds for sharing these photos that were taken in Alnwick during the Queen’s Golden Jubilee celebrations in 2002 – do you recognise anyone?  It looks like a fun time was had by all!

Please send your memories to or share via our Facebook page.
