We’re delighted to let you know plans for celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in Blackburn town centre.


BwD Council and The Mall will be decorating the town centre and shopping centre with bunting


BwD Council are planning some special planting beds to commemorate the event

Pavement Art Workshops

The Mall and Blackburn BID are providing pavement art workshops curtesy of Urban Art.  2 large murals will be created in the town centre and visitors will be invited to help design them over the course of Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June. 

The designs will be jubilee themed and 2 artists will create the outline and support members of the public to take part in designing and completing the amazing artwork using water based pastels.

Shop Window Dressing competition

All BID and town centre businesses are invited to take part in a Queens Platinum Jubilee shop window dressing competition

To take part simply confirm to Blackburn BID (via email catherine.price@newground.co.uk / whatsapp 07860 952 352 / social media) that you are taking part, then create an amazing shop window display which celebrates the Queens Platinum Jubilee! 

We’ll provide you with a poster confirming you are taking part, and we’ll be asking members of the public to vote for their favourite via social media.  

The winner will receive a certificate and a basket of treats for the team/people who decorated the window, as well as lots of promotion on social media.  

The competition was suggested by Blackburn BID Executive Board member Pele of Pelle Menswear on Town Hall St, and he has set the bar by decorating his window first of all, in partnership with the Veterans Living History Museum:

We look forward to hearing from you if you’d like to take part in the Shop Window Dressing Competition, and/or if you’d like more information about anything taking place.
