Next year marks the 70th year of the 95-year-old monarch's reign. And the nation will be taking a four day Bank Holiday weekend from June 2 to party.

Beacons will be lit across the country and the Commonwealth, while two Norfolk music teachers have launched a competition to choose a special jubilee song, which will be sing around the world.

Beacon lightings so far confirmed for Norfolk on Thursday, June 2, 2022 include:
