Norwich residents will be celebrating the Diamond Jubilee this weekend with street parties and a beacon will be lit on City Hall balcony to mark the occasion.

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee weekend will be an opportunity for everyone to commemorate the anniversary and the city will be no exception, with over fifteen street parties taking place.

City council leader, Brenda Arthur said; "The weekend is a wonderful opportunity for neighbours to come together and I am so pleased that so many communities have chosen to do so."

The council will mark the Diamond Jubilee by lighting a beacon on the balcony of City Hall. The beacon will burn for one hour, from 10.15pm on Monday 4th June.

The Norwich beacon joins a network of over 4,000 beacons being lit across the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and Isle of Man, along with the Commonwealth and UK Overseas Territories to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
