Celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of HM The Queen

Marking a special year in the life of our Patron

Time to celebrate

In 2022 we’re celebrating HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. As she reaches this historic milestone, HM The Queen will have served the nation for 70 years as monarch.

As HM The Queen is also our Patron, this makes it an extra special occasion for us as Scouts. We know many of you will want to mark this moment, and we’d like to help you do that in a way that’s as easy and rewarding as possible, creating great memories for the future.

Scouting is a global force for good. In this country and around the world, Scouts are helping others and making the most of their lives.

When we’ll be celebrating

We’re celebrating the whole year round (why not?). However, there’ll be a special focus around the extended bank holiday from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June 2022. This is when communities across the UK will unite to celebrate the jubilee – the first time any British monarch has celebrated a reign of 70 years.

The official Scouts uniform badge for HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is available from Scout Store and may be worn on uniform all year.
