Celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee at Covent Garden – from performances by The London Gay Man’s Chorus to a gourmet feast from Street Kitchen, there will be lots to eat, see and do. It is the perfect destination to soak up the atmosphere and be part of the celebrations in one of the Capital’s most iconic locations:
• From 23rd May, the historic Covent Garden Market Building will be adorned in hundreds of Union Jack flags making it the ideal picture opportunity and an atmospheric spot to shop or enjoy lunch at one of the many restaurants and cafes.
• Saturday 2nd June at 2pm, the fabulous London Gay Men’s Chorus will entertain visitors with an exclusive live performance of ‘60 Queens for the Queen’. Sixty members of the choir dressed in homage to Her Royal Highness, will perform a medley of tunes with a royal celebration theme. You won’t find a show like this anywhere else in the Capital.
• Street Kitchen will once again be taking residence on the Piazza, cooking up gourmet food for Londoners to eat on the go. Served in take away boxes, their simple and healthy bistro style dishes use 100% UK ingredients sourced directly from farms, so the produce is super fresh and super tasty.
More free entertainment will be provided by Covent Garden’s world famous street performers who will remain in residence on the Piazza throughout the bank holiday weekend. What’s more with quintessential British brands from Burberry Brit to Paul Smith, you can indulge in some retail therapy, while paying your respects to the sovereign or you can while away the afternoon and find a moment of quiet at one of Covent Garden’s secret retreats, from the Royal Opera House Rooftop Balcony to St Paul’s Church gardens to afternoon tea with a French twist on the balcony of Laduree tea salon.
