What's On

Jubilee Event: Humber Platinum Jubilee Flotilla

HULL MARINA, Humber Dock Street, Hull, HU1 1TB

2 Jun 2022



Family Friendly

Location: Hull Marina & Hessle Foreshore

There will be a flotilla of 70 boats on the River Humber forming up at various points, culminating at the Humber Bridge, Hessle. They will then sail back along the river (at approximately 9pm), reaching the Hull Marina for 9.30pm, ready for the Beacon lighting at 9.45pm.

As part of the national lighting scheme, The Deep’s nose cone will be illuminated for the entire Jubilee weekend – onlookers will be able to see the cone from land, and sea.

At around 9.35pm a lone piper Danny Flemming will stand atop the Deep and play Pipe Du Regnare, for what will doubtless be a wonderful spectacle. Following that, around 9.40pm, Mark Norrie will perform the unique Jubilee bugle call. The beacon will then be lit on the walls of Stage@TheDock.

To conclude the evening, at 9.47pm, A Life Lived with Grace (the official anthem of the Jubilee) will be performed by Hull Ladies Choir, The New Park Singers, The Wedding Belles and Hull Visual Choir together.

The main part of this event is located on Hessle Foreshore with live music etc. and the lighting of the Beacon. 2pm until 10pm: Platinum-Jubilee-Event.pdf (
