It is only weeks away from the country celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with an extended bank holiday weekend next month. People will mark the Queen’s 70 years on the throne between Thursday, June 2, and Sunday, June 5.
And the world’s smallest Platinum Jubilee celebration is taking place right here – in Birmingham city centre. The Legoland Discovery Centre Birmingham is throwing the tiny special bash.
After taking to the throne in 1952, Her Majesty has had an extraordinary legacy, serving not only the UK but those throughout the Commonwealth. And as such, the residents of the Legoland Discovery Centre have decided to mark the occasion with a party like no other.
Taking to the streets of Miniland Birmingham, a mini figure of Queen Elizabeth II can be spotted waving with the rest of her royal family from the balcony, as her Jubilee carriage and mini figures parade the streets in her honour.
With foot guards marching, 350 patriots waving the nation’s flag, streets lined with bunting, reporters on hand and secret service officers watching nearby, it’s an image we’re sure to see replicated in real life throughout the Platinum Pageant and Trooping of the Colour during the extended Bank Holiday weekend.
Legoland Discovery Centre Birmingham’s Miniland features many of the city’s iconic buildings, from the Bullring to the world’s smallest Primark and now for the first time has its very own regal procession.
Michelle Thomas, master model builder at Legoland Discovery Centre Birmingham, said: “We are all so looking forward to the Platinum Jubilee celebrations later this month. Her Majesty has been an amazing role model to the country over her 70 years on the throne, so we decided we should do something to honour her legacy, by creating one of the world’s smallest (but greatest) Jubilee celebrations.
“Our mini figures lined the streets of Birmingham to commemorate the queen, and even threw a tiny street celebration complete with a miniature tea party including cucumber, ham and jam sandwiches alongside Victoria sponge cake, biscuits and fruit punch.
“Our Platinum Jubilee celebrations in Miniland will be on display throughout the lead up to and during the Jubilee, we can’t wait to welcome our guests to our attraction to enjoy the world’s smallest party parade!”
