Throughout the Jubilee weekend and until the end of June – the Queen’s Photographic Jubilee Pageant.
Come along to the Victoria Rooms to view this amazing photographic compilation of the many momentous events which have taken place during the 70-year reign of our Queen and find out what was happening in our village of Milverton at the same time.
This beautiful collage has been carefully planned and presented by Bev Blackmore and is most definitely worth a visit. On display during the Made in Milverton Exhibition, at the Jubilee Market and at other times as indicated on the poster outside the Victoria Rooms.
Made in Milverton
For one day only on Thursday 2 June from 11am to 6pm the work of local artists and craftspeople will be on display in the Victoria Rooms. A wide range of crafts will be exhibited, including paintings, pottery, wooden pieces, fabric items, jewellery and a whole lot more.
There is no charge to visit the exhibition, although some of the pieces will be on sale. There will be a wide variety of work on display, including paintings, wooden pieces, stained glass, patchwork and a whole lot more. There will also be the opportunity to meet some of the artists and craftspeople and, possibly, commission your own unique piece.
Light refreshments will be available between 11am and 4pm at Victoria’s Café in the Reading Room.
Walking Treasure Hunt
On the 2 June between 2pm and 5pm is our Walking Treasure Hunt around the village. This consists of photographs of features and buildings in the village, often taken in close-up, together with written clues – all you have to do is locate the features and buildings in the photographs and answer the questions! There is no charge to enter and The Globe have very generously offered a £50 voucher to the winning team. Pick up your question sheet from the Victoria Rooms from 2pm and make sure they are returned by 5pm so they can be marked and the lucky winners announced.
Milverton Music Club Jubilee Concert
Milverton Music Club proudly present the Silver Street Band and guests on Friday 3 June at 7.30pm in the Victoria Rooms. Tickets £5 each with all ticket proceeds going to the Ukraine Appeal.
Jubilee Community Market
Come along to the Victoria Rooms for our monthly market on Saturday 4 June from 10am to 12 noon with a definite Jubilee theme! There will be plenty of bunting, stallholders dressed in red, white and blue, ’50s music playing in the background and even the opportunity to have your photo taken with the Queen!
While enjoying coffee and homemade cake in the Reading Room, you will be able to watch, in full colour, the 1953 Coronation procession and service. As always, there will be plenty of bargains to be purchased, so what better way to spend a very special Saturday morning.
