The stars of music, TV, film and theatre are lining up to help us all celebrate the four-day weekend
Diana Ross, Queen and Adam Lambert, and Eurovision runner-up Sam Ryder are all set to perform at the Platinum Party at the Palace on 4 June. The event will be watched live by 22,000 people and broadcast to the rest of the nation on BBC One.
Also performing are Alicia Keys, Mabel, Craig David, Ella Eyre, Elbow, Jax Jones, Celeste, Andrea Bocelli, Nile Rodgers and Sigala. Legendary composer Hans Zimmer will also take part in the event, as well as Sir Elton John, whose performance will be pre-recorded as he will be on his European tour.
Film and TV stars such as Sir David Attenborough, Dame Julie Andrews and Stephen Fry will also take part, whilst David Beckham and Emma Raducanu will represent the world of sports.
The casts of The Phantom of the Opera, Hamilton, Six, The Lion King and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat will celebrate the world of theatre, with contributions from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Lin Manuel Miranda.
The BBC have said that the event will “pivot around global themes that have been born, or evolved, during the breadth of Her Majesty’s reign”.
