Leighton-Linslade Town Council along with the Rotary Club of Leighton-Linslade have been busy finalising the arrangements for the four days.

It all begins on Thursday (June 2) when the Town Crier makes a proclamation at 2pm by the Market Cross to announce that beacons will be lit across the country later that evening. The beacon for Leighton-Linslade will lit in Parson’s Close Recreation Ground from 9.30pm which will be followed shortly afterwards by a firework display lasting 8-10 minutes.

The celebrations continue throughout Friday with the Rotary Club of Leighton-Linslade hosting their Jubilee Fayre throughout the High Street, Church Square and within Parson’s Close Recreation Ground from 10am – 4pm.
